About Takhat Shri Damdama Sahib

Takhat Damdama Sahib is situated at Talwandi Sabo, 28 km southeast of Bathinda, Punjab. Literally, Damdama means a place to have a break and rest.
Guru Gobind Singh Ji arrived this place in 1705 on a high elevated small piece land and took a break & relaxed, after fighting battles against shockingly cruel and inhumane mughals. Due to this reason this piece of land is famous as Damdama Sahib. It is the place where Guru Ji prepared the revised & authentic version of the Adi Granth which is now being honored by the Sikhs as Guru Granth Sahib ji. He added to the original version prepared by Guru Arjan Dev Ji the verses of Guru Teg Bahadur Ji. The Damdame Wali Bir as it is sometimes called was completed here by Guru Gobind Singh. It was transcribed by Bhai Mani Singh. From Damdama Sahib Guruji released orders (Hukamnama) for Sikh Desciples & announced or rather declared this sacred place as a Takhat.

The other four Takhats are:

Akal Takhat beside the Golden Temple - Amritsar

Takhat Keshgarh Sahib (Birthplace of the Khalsa) - Anandpur Sahib

Takhat Sachkhand Sri Patna Sahib - Patna, Bihar
