Anandpur Sahib is dotted with a lot of religious places related to Sikhism.
Gurudwara Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib:
This Gurudwara is the central place of Shri Anandpur Sahib. It is the birthplace of
Khalsa- the Revelation of Khalsa took place here. The sanctum centorium is one of the
Five Temporal Authorities (Five Takhats) of Sikhism.
Gurudwara Sisganj Sahib:
Shri Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib Ji embraced martyrdom in Delhi on November 11, 1675.
His Head was brought here from Gurudwara Bibangarh, Shri Kiratpur Sahib by Bhai
Jaita Ji (Bhai Jeewan Singh Ji) and his associates. Here, the "Head of Shri Guru Teg
Bahadur Sahib Ji" was cremated. It is believed that central pedestal of this shrine is the
oldest structure of Chak Nanki, Anandpur Sahib.
Gurdwara Guru Ka Mahal:
This was the first building of Chak Nanaki, Anandpur Sahib. The foundation stone was
laid here. Guru Gobind Singh Ji, Mata Gujri Ji, Mata Jit Kaur, Mata Sundar Kaur, Mata
Sahib Kaur and four Sahibzadas of Guru Sahibs used to live here. Sahibzada Jujhar

modern structure and has a very little in common with the old fort.
Virasat-e-Khalsa (erstwhile known as Khalsa Heritage Memorial Complex) is a museum

five hundred years ago, which gave birth to Sikhism and finally the Khalsa Panth.
