Gurdwara Vaddi

Bari Sangat Guru Tegh Bahadur Nichi Bagh

Gurdwara Vaddi, also known as Bari Sangat Guru Tegh Bahadur Nichi Bagh, is situated in Mohalla Aas Bhairon of Varanasi town in Uttar Pradesh. It has been built to preserve the memory of the stay of Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib. The present building of this Gurdwara was built in the latter half of the 19th century and many modifications were done during repeated renovations. This place is also much sanctified by the visit of Guru Gobind Singh Sahib in 1670 on his way from Patna to Lakhnaur. It is assumed that Guru Nanak Sahib, the founder of Sikhism, too had visited this site.

The main attractions here include a spring, Baoli Charan Ganga, and a basement called Tap Asthan, where Guru Sahib used to meditate. There are several Hukamnamas (Guru's letters) as well as other relics belonging to Guru Sahib. These include 17 Hukamnamas, a pair of shoes and two Cholas (cloaks) belonging to Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib and a pair of shoes belonging to Guru Gobind Singh Sahib.
