Gurdwara Guru Ka Bagh
Gurdwara Guru Ka Bagh is a sikh shrine about three kilometers east of Takht Patna Sahib. It was the place where Guru Tegh Bahadur ji met his son for the first time.
Getting the news of birth of a son, Guru Tegh Bahadur ji returned from Assam to Patna and stayed in an aged and dried Bagh. After His visit, the dry Bagh became lush and Green with plantlife.
Seeing that miracle, people went to the owner of the Bagh. Then Nawab delighted to get that news. Nawab approached Guru ji and took blessings and gifted whole Bagh to Guru ji. That is why, it is called as Guru Ka Bagh.
One Sadhu Mahatma was also living in that Bagh who was worshiping for a quite long time. Seeing that miracle he said that it is a magic and Guru ji is a magician. Hearing that Guru ji went to him and said Mahatma ji you had worshiped a lot but you are still not free from Maaya. To bring him on the right path, Guru ji ordered a Sikh to bring the things from the nearby well.
Obeying the order he took out one lota (gadvi) and one beragan from the well. Guru ji kept both the things before Mahatma and said these things were floated away when you were taking bathe in the river. Now I am returning your belongings to you. Mahatma recognized both the things. And fell before Guru ji. Conveying him the message of one God, Guru ji freed him from this world.
This Gurdwara has beautiful Sarowar. Its present building was constructed during the 1970s and 1980s.
