Anandpur Sahib, the City of Bliss, is one of the important centres of Sikh religion. Founded by the ninth Guru, Tegh Bahadur, in AD 1664, the city came into prominence during the period of his son and successor, Guru Gobind Singh. Situated in the picturesque lower spurs of the Shivalik mountain ranges on the left bank of river Sutlej, the holy city is dotted by a number of historical gurdwaras. It was here that Guru Gobind Singh created the order of the Khalsa at Takhat Kesgarh, which is one of the five centers of Sikh temporal authority. The text by Dr. Mohinder Singh and photographs by Sondeep Shanker provide a fascinating account and rare glimpses of the holy city.
