Gurdwara Tarn Taran Sahib

Gurudwara Tarn Taran Sahib, Visit Gurudwara Tarn Taran Sahib of Punjab, Temple tour of Gurudwara Tarn Taran SahibAround 1590 Guru Arjan Dev set out on a tour of the country between the rivers Ravi and Beas. Here Guru Arjan Dev bought some land and laid the foundation of a Gurdwara in honor of Guru Ram Das and started the excavation of a tank even bigger than Amritsar.

The Gurdwara has one of the largest tanks and resembles the Golden Temple, except that it is built on the side of the tank and has a marble exterior. Guru Arjan Dev also established the first home for lepers in India at Tarn Taran.

There's a temple, which was constructed by Ranjit Singh. Fairs are held here on every 'Amavas' dark night of the month This is another gurudwara and tank built in 1768 by Guru Arjun Dev, in the town of Tarn Taran.

The holy building commemorates Guru Ram Das (the Sikh guru who founded the city of Amritsar) known to have selflessly slept alongside a leper once. Though there is no scientific evidence that the water cures leprosy, it is said to have healing properties.
