History of Gurdwara Hemkund Sahib

Guru Gobind Singh Ji the Tenth Master in one of his great holy compositions entitled “Bachittar Natak” while giving a hint or pointing out this good site Hemkund Sahib or Hemkunt Sahib:

Ab mae apni katha bakhano.
(Now I narrate my own tale)

Hemkunt parbat hae jahan. Sapat sring sobhit hae tahan.
(Hemkunt Mountain is auspiciously situated among “Sapat Sring”, a mountain-chain of the Himalyas

Tah hum adhik tappasia saadhi.
(At that site I meditated heavily on God in the previous birth)

Tin prabh jab aais muhe dia. Tab ham janam kalloo meh lia.
(When the Almighty allowed me then I took birth in the dark age)

On the basis of the aforesaid holy composition uttered by Guru Sahib and with the Sikh Sangat’s assistance some Gursikhs (the true Sikhs) Sant Sohan Singh ji Tihri wale, Hawaldar Modan Singh ji, Bhai Vir Singh ji etc. started the research work of this holy place Hemkund Sahib.
