Historical Gurdwaras of Punjab
Guru Arjan

In Memory of Guru Ram Das
Gurdwara Sri Tarn Taran Sahib, Dist. Amritsar

Around 1590 Guru Arjan set out on a tour of the country between the rivers Ravi and Beas. Here Guru Arjan bought some land and laid the foundation of a Gurdwara in honor of Guru Ram Das and started the excavation of a tank even larger than Amritsar. The Gurdwara has one of the largest tanks and resembles the Golden Temple, except that it is built on the side of the tank and has a marble exterior. Guru Arjan also established the first home for lepers in India at Tarn Taran.
