About Tarn Taran Sahib in Amritsar
About Taran Taran Sahib Sarovar
Located in the Majha region of Punjab, Tarn Taran Sahib serves as the headquarters of the Tarn Taran district. Apart from serving as the municipal headquarters is also an important Sikh Pilgrimage site. The circumference of the sarovar (pond) is about 1.5 kilometers, making it larger in size than sarovar at Golden Temple in Amritsar.
About Sarovar History
Tarn Taran was founded by the 5th Sikh Guru Shri Guru Arjan Dev. It was also a part of the Sikh dynasty rule before Punjab came under the British rule along with rest of the Indian states. Being a hub of Sikh culture, Tarn Taran Sahib was one of the few districts in Punjab with majority of Sikh population after the partition of India.
Tarn Taran Punjab is home to a number of Sikh Gurdwaras such as Gurdwara Bibi Bhani Da Khuh, Gurdwara Takkar Sahib, Gurdwara Lakeer Sahib, Gurudwara Baba Garja Singh Baba Bota Singh, Gurdwara Jhulna Mahal, and Tapiana Sahib.
Gurdwara Sri Tarn Taran Sahib is one of the most important Gurdwara from both historical and religious point of view. It was founded by Shri Guru Arjan Dev, and the Tarn taran Sahib Sarovar is known to be the largest sarovar (holy pond). Another important part of this Gurdwara is the ‘Har Ki Pauri’ which is a flight of stairs that descends down to a sarovar. According to legends, it was Shri Guru Arjan Dev who made the first cut when the digging started in 1590. The Darbar Sahib (main hall) of the gurdwara resembles the architecture of Darbar Sahib of Golden Temple with the only difference that the former has a marble exterior while the latter has a gold plated exterior.
Punjabi is the main language spoken all throughout the district of Tarn Taran Sahib, and other languages like Hindi, and English are also spoken here. So, tourists coming to this place will not be facing major communication problems.
Visit this holy place to embark on a spiritual, and religious journey during your Punjab tour.
