Gurudwara Bibangarh Sahib

Kiratpur Sahib was founded by the sixth Guru Sri Hargobind Sahib. Here the seventh and eighth Gurus were born and brought up. It was here that Guru Gobind Singh along with his followers received the sacred head of the ninth Guru Sri Tegh Bahadur, brought from Delhi with great devotion and respect by Bhai Jaita in 1675. The particular spot associated with and sanctified by it, is known as Gurudwara Bibangarh Sahib. The tenth Guru took the sacred head of his father  to Anandpur Sahib for cremation. The Punjab Government has constructed a pillar here, on which is inscribed the following quotation from Guru Gobind Singh describing the unique martyrdom of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadurji, “The Lord (Guru Tegh Bahadur) protected their paste mark (Tilak) – and the sacred thread. A great deed he enacted in the age of kala (darkness)”.
