Historical Gurdwaras of Punjab
Guru Arjan

Completion of the Holy Granth Sahib
Gurdwara Ramsar, Dist. Amritsar

Guru Arjan spent a year here at the side of a pool with shady trees along with his scribe Bhai Gurdas and compiled the first copy of Sri Guru Granth Sahib in 1604. Guru Arjan not only included his own compositions but those of the previous four Gurus as well as the writings of Hindu and Muslim saints. There is no holy book like Sri Guru Granth Sahib, that includes the writings of people of other faiths, and which was written in the founding Gurus own writing. Upon completion the Sacred Volume was then installed in the Golden Temple by Guru Arjan with Baba Buddha appointed it’s first Granthi (caretaker).
