Relics of Tenth Guru to be shifted to Keshgarh Sahib

Anandpur Sahib, Punjab: The relics of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh guru, being displayed at Kila Mubarak at Patiala will be shifted to Takht Sri Keshgarh Sahib. This was decided at a meeting convened by SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar here today.

Among those who attended the meeting were Takht Keshgarh Sahib, Jathedar Mal Singh, Ropar MLA Dr Daljit Singh Cheema and Principal Secretary to Chief Minister KJS Cheema.

Dr Cheema said that three swords, a gutka of Gurbani with signatures of Guru Gobind Singh, a chola sahib (robe), a dastar (turban) and a comb will be brought from Kila Mubarak and placed here at Takht Keshgarh Sahib.

The dastar and comb were given by Guru Gobind Singh to Peer Budhu Shah, whose decendants handed these articles over to the king of Nabha Maharja Bharpur Singh, during his rule from 1847 to 1863.

“The birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh is scheduled to be celebrated on January 7. We have begun preparations to shift these articles,” said SGPC president Makkar.
