[ VIDEO ] Gurdwara Sangat Tola (9th Guru), Dhaka, Bangladesh

Guru Tegh Bahadur ji, the 9th Guru of the Sikhs, established Gurdwara Sangat Tola at 14 Sreesh Das Lane at Bangla Bazar, Dhaka.

Guru Tegh Bahadur came to Dhaka from Assam and stayed here for two years (1666-68). It was here that Guru Sahib received the news of the birth of his son, Gobind Rai (later Guru Gobind Singh).

The Gurdwara Sangat Tola building is 300 years old and needed a great deal of restoration work. Baba Sukha Singh visited Bangladesh in March 2006 and met senior officials there concerning the works that were to be carried out. Granthi Singhs and Ragi Singhs were sent soon after to observe the Maryada in the Gurdwara. Baba Sukha Singh ji now regularly makes a trip here to oversee renovation and construction works.

Watch the video to see a wooden beam that was in the room where Guru Sahib stayed.
