Anandpur Sahib

Anandpur Sahib is located at a distance northwest of 95 kilometers from Chandigarh. Shivalik ranges are visible towards the eastern side of Anandpur Sahib. The western side in the vicinity of Anandpur Sahib is a stretch of vast lush green expanse along with gurgling River Satluj.

Guru Teg Bahadur Ji, the ninth Master of the Sikhs, purchased this site from the ruler of Bilaspur in the year 1665 and established this city of Anandpur Sahib. He named it Chak Nanki, after the name of his mother. Guru Gobind Singh Ji spent 25 years of his life in this place.

On March 30,1689 Guru Gobind Singh Sahib laid the cornerstone of a new town and named it Anandpur Sahib. To save Anandpur from external threats, Guru Gobind Singh JI fortified Anandpur with five forts on the periphery of the town. The forts were joined with earthworks and underground tunnels.

On the sacred land of Anandpur Sahib Guru Gobind Singh Ji baptized Panj Pyaraas (five beloved ones) and laid the foundation of Khalsa Panth. The nearest Railway Station to reach Anandpur is at Nangal, nearest Airport is at Chandigarh.
