Sunday Visit to Tarn Taran

This weekend we were blessed to travel to Tarn Taran Sahib, a Gurdwara about 30 minutes outside of Amritsar. Guru Arjan Dev Ji, the Fifth Sikh Guru, founded Tarn Taran Sahib in the year 1590. At that time, the digging of the lake tank started. When the tank was completed, it was the biggest and largest sarovar lake in the whole of Punjab. The foundation stone of the Darbar Sahib was laid by Baba Buddha Ji, a famous Sikh saint (1506–1631). Later, the Sixth Sikh Guru, Guru Hargobind Sahib, came to the gurdwara and stayed for some time. Our students learned about Sikh history and enjoyed the incredible beauty of the sarovar and the temple.
