Destinations and visits covered:

Sri Akal Takht Sahib (Amritsar): Akal Takht Sahib literally means Eternal Throne. It is also part of the Golden Temple complex in Amritsar. It's foundation was laid by Guru Hargobind Sahib. The Akal Takht is situated opposite to Harmandir Sahib (Golden temple) and is connected by a passage. While the Golden Temple stands for spiritual guidance the Akal Takht symbolizes the dispensing of justice and temporal activity. During the day the Guru Granth Sahib is kept in the Golden Temple, while at night it is kept in the Akal Takht Sahib. The Akal Takht is the oldest of the Five Takhts. The *Golden Temple* also known as *Sri Harmandir Sahib* ("abode of God") is the holiest Gurdwara and the most important pilgrimage site of Sikhism. The temple is built around a man-made pool (sarovar) that was completed by Guru Ram Das in 1577.  The temple was repeatedly rebuilt by the Sikhs after it became a target of persecution and was destroyed several times by the Muslim armies and the Mughal Empire.Maharaja Ranjit Singh after founding the Sikh Empire, rebuilt it in marble and copper in 1809, overlaid the sanctum with gold foil in 1830. This has led to the name the Golden Temple. Over 100,000 people visit the holy shrine daily for worship.

Sri Damdama Sahib (Bhatinda): Takht Sri Damdama Sahib is one of the five Takhts or Seat of Temporal Authority of Sikhism. It is situated in the small town Talwandi Sabo which is 28 Km South east of Bhatinda in Punjab.  Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the tenth Sikh Guru, stayed here for approximately a year in 1705 and prepared the revised and authentic version of the Adi Granth which is now being honored by the Sikhs as Guru Granth Sahib, their perpetual Guru or spiritual guide or teacher.

Sri Harmandirji Sahib (Patna): Takht Sri Patna Sahib, is a Gurdwara in Patna, India. It was to commemorate the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of the Sikhs on December 1666. It was built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1780-1839), the first Maharaja of the Sikh Empire, who also built many other Gurdwaras in the Indian subcontinent. The current shrine of Patna Sahib or Takht Sri Harmandirji Saheb was built in the 1950s. Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru, was born in Patna, Bihar, in 1666. He also spent his early years here before moving to Anandpur. Besides being the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh, Patna was also honored by visits from Guru Nanak as well as Guru Tegh Bahadur.

It is located on the banks of the River Godavari at the city of Nanded in the state of Maharashtra, Western India. The gurudwara within the complex is known as Sach-Khand (Realm of Truth). The structure is built at the place where Guru Gobind Singh Ji got shaheed. The inner room of the gurdwara is called the Angitha Sahib and is built over the place where Guru Gobind Singh was cremated in 1708. The gurdwara was built between 1832 and 1837 by order of Maharaja Ranjit Singh Ji(1780–1839).
