A very hush-hush place. It houses symbolic Meeri-Peeri swords of Guru Gobind Singh ji and other relics of the past. It is the seat of high command of Sikh religion. This place has been giving guidance to the religion from time immemorial. A very revered place amongst the Sikhs.

Wonderful place to visit quietly..must visit if you are in Amritsar. It is a welcome change to see such well maintained religioous places in India, which made myself, not at all a religious person enjoy the tranquil ambience
