A filmmaker has shot footage of Sri Anandpur Sahib with a drone. The unbelievable footage gives a bird’s eye view of the spectacular scenery of Takht Sri Keshgarh Sahib.
It is also known as “Takht Shri Keshgarh Sahib” and is one of five highest Sikh institutions in India; it is the city’s main Sikh shrine.
The city began as Chakk Nanaki, which was founded by Guru Tegh Bahadur in 1665. His son Guru Gobind Singh ji, who spent 25 years of his life in the city, added greatly to the city’s size, giving it the new name of the City of Bliss (Anandpur).
Its foundation stone was laid on March 30,1689. In fact, It was here that the Khalsa was born with the first initiation of Khande Di Pahul, when Guru Gobind Singh Ji called for a special congregation on the Baisakhi day of 1699 with thousands of Sikhs in attendance.
One can only imagine how large the area was around Keshgarh Sahib then to accommodate the many thousands of Sikhs in attendance on that historic day.
