One of Delhi's major Sikh places of worship, Gurdwara Sis Ganj Sahib lies on Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi. The imposing building with its recognisable bulbous golden domes is said to have been built on the site where Sikh Guru Tegh Bahadur was killed and martyred by Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb in 1675 AD. His commemorative temple was constructed a century later, but the present structure dates from a 1931 reconstruction.
