Gurdwara Bal Lila, Patna
Gurudwara Bal Leela is also called as Maini Sangat.
This Gurudwara is associated with the childhood of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Guru ji were playing at this place with other children during his childhood.
GURUDWARA Sahib is close to Takht Sahib, Patna, marks the house where Raja Fateh Chand Maini lived.
Once Wife of King Fateh Chand Maini, who is childless, prayed to God to have a son like Guru ji. One day she was worshiping to God when Guru ji came and sat in her lap. Guru ji called her mother. She was amazed to hear this as nobody had called her with that name before. She was overjoyed as Guru Ji called her mother and was called Dharam Mata. She served Guru Ji and his friends with the boiled grams.
This visit changed the life of the King and the Queen, into happiness. They adopted Gobind Rai as their own son and decided to donate the palace and property in the name of Gobind Rai.
While returning home, Gobind Rai reported to his mother that he had made another mother. Mother (Gujri) asked, 'Then how will one son play in two laps'. 'Just as one moon is visible in two pools at the same time' replied Gobind Rai.
The palace was converted into Sikh Shrine Gurdwara as congregational center.
Boiled grams are distributed as a Parsaad in this Gurudwara in the memory of Guru Ji.
The following historical things are worth seeing:
1. Pair of little shoes of Gobind Rai.
2. Little tree of Karonda, remains ever blooming that had grown up from the toothbrush of Gobind Rai.
