 About Gurudwara Shri Keshgarh Sahib

Gurudwara Shri Keshgarh Sahib is a birthplace of Khalsa in Anandpur Sahib, Punjab. This is one of only five Takhats or Seats of Authority of the Sikhs, thus also known as Takhat Keshgarh Sahib.

Kesgarh Sahib fort was built in 1699. After the establishment of Anandpur Sahib, Guru Sahib used to hold congregations on this hill. Revelation of Khalsa and first inititation (Khande Di Pahul) took place here. At that time the hill of Kesgarh Sahib was at least 10-15 feet higher than its present height. By the side of this hill there stood another hill. It was known as "Tambu (tent) Wali Pahari" because a special tent was set up here on the day of revelation of Khalsa. This hill does not exist any more. The hill armies attacked Anandpur Sahib several times between 1700 and 1705 but never could the invading armies reach Kesgarh Sahib because it was a very strong fort and before reaching the gates of this fort the armies had to capture the fort at Taragarh, Agamgarh, Fatehgarh and Anandgarh. This could not happen even once in the history of Anandpur Sahib. It was only on December 6,1705, when GURU SAHIB abandoned the town, the hill armies entered this fort and demolished it. The Sikhs could not enter Anandpur Sahib till Baba Banda Singh Bahadur subjugated the ruler of Bilaspur. The Sikhs had to face another wave of persecution after the fall of Baba Banda Singh. Within the next ten years most of the Sikh homeland was under the rule of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the Sikh Misls and the Patiala dynasty and this meant peace in the Punjab; hence Anandpur Sahib was most safe place for the Sikhs. After 1820 regular Granthis began serving at Kesgarh Sahib.This is one of only five Takhats or Seats of Authority of the Sikhs.

The other four Takhats are:

Akal Takhat beside the Golden Temple - Amritsar

Takhat Sachkhand Sri Patna Sahib - Patna, Bihar

Takhat Sachkhand Shri Hazur Sahib(the place where Guru Gobind Singh took his last breath) - Hazur Sahib

Takhat Damdama Sahib - Bathinda, Punjab
