Gurdwara Chheharta Sahib

Gurdwara Chheharta Sahib is a highly revered shrine situated about 7 km west of Amritsar. This gurdwara was built to commemorate the birth of Guru Hargobind, the sixth Sikh guru. Main attraction here is a big well with six Persian wheels. Devotees believe that the gurdwara got its name from this well. Spread over an area of 6 acres, this gurdwara has a divan hall and a square sanctum with a lotus dome, topped by a gold plated pinnacle. The 25 m tall flagposts carry two Nishan Sahibs, Sikh flags. On the fifth day of the light half of every lunar month, a congregation is held here. Vasant Panchami Festival is celebrated here with much pomp and merriment. Regular buses are available from Amritsar Bus Station. Amritsar Junction Railway Station is the major railhead nearby, and Amritsar International Airport is the nearest airport.
