Last year I visited Shri Huzur Sahib Nanded /Takht Sachkhand during the month of December. The serenity and peaceful environment provided me and my family the much needed solace which generally one seeks during the pilgrimage. The Gurudwara structure is very huge, ancient, spread in acres, artistically built and attracts everyone with its grandeur. ( Sachkhand was used by Guru Nanak Dev which means ‘Abode of God’.)
It marks the site where Guru Gobind Singh had his camp in 1708, after the departure of the Emperor Bahadur Shah. In October 2008, the 300th anniversary celebration of the Guruship of Guru Granth Sahib took place. Former Prime Minister of India Mr. Manmohan Singh graced the occasion. Yesterday I watched him on T.V. regarding the coal scam he has been sucked in, I was reminded of the good work he has done to improve this place.
Facts about it:
HazÅ«r SÄhib (hazÅ«rÄ« sÄhib á¸¥aá¸Å«r al-á¹£Äá¸¥ib “presence of the master”), also spelled Hazoor Sahib, more called as Takht Sachkhand Shri Hazur Abchalnagar Sahib and also known as Abchal Nagar, is one of the five takhts (“thrones”, seats of temporal authority) in Sikhism. It is located on the banks of the River Godavari at the city of Nanded in the state of Maharashtra, Western India. It is where the 10th guru, Guru Gobind Singh completed his last breath. The gurudwara within the complex is known Sach-Khand “Realm of Truth”.
There are other beautiful buildings and smaller Gurudwaras which can be visited after having a visit to the main one. They are equally religious in nature.
The structure is built at the place of death of Guru Gobind Singh. The inner room of the gurdwara is called the Angitha Sahib and is built over the place where Guru Gobind Singh was cremated in 1708. The construction of the gurdwara was done from 1832 to 1837 by order of Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1780â€“1839). Source: Wikipedia
