“Harimandir Gurdwara Patna Sahib”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

It is in the old part of the city. The roads are narrow and crowded. Better to leave taxi away from the market area and walk all around before entering the Gurdwara. Market is shoppers' paradise. Plenty and variety of eatables available.
Inside the main gate of Gurdwara Campus it is comparatively quiet and peaceful. The music on public address system is soulful. Prasad is heavenly.
The inner sanctum is huge and very impressive. The Granth Sahib is displayed in all its glory.
I highly recommend the travelers to visit this place.

“Takht Shri Harmindar Ji Patna Saheb Gurudwara at Patna”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

The journey of mine from the railway station to gurudwara was an interesting and memorable one.
As soon as you enter the boundaries of Gurudwara you can feel the surge if peace with the live chanting going on almost at any time of the day. Personally i love putting my feet to water before entering to gurudwara. Then similarly you can cherish the delicious Prasad of desi ghee. You can get it at the token of Rs 10 too which is worth far less then the quality you are having. It turns out to be most fulfilling
This is one of only five Takhats or Holy Seats of Authority of the Sikhs. The Gurdwara Patna Sahib is in remembrance of the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of the Sikhs.This Gurdwara was built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh.Guru Tegh Bahadur visited Patna, he stayed in this exact site. A magnificent house was built above the dharamsala of Salis Rai the dharmshala seemed to be the popular one among the community . A small museum is also there.
Reaching To the Destination
Well there are 3 ways to reach patna sahib gurudwara from the railway station
• A Road Journey
o Reserve an Auto for to and fro (400-500 rs)
o Reserve a cab (600-700)
o Use of sharing auto by changing 2-3 in a way
o Bus (I haven't tried this one personally but there must be some arrangement via it as well)
• B Train Journey
Now let me pick these options in order I approached
Giving an auto 400-500 rs for day time traveling and for a single person doesent seemed that worthy so the idea was an instantaneous drop.
I have a liking towards train journey as they are traffic free hassel free in the day.
Grab any passanger/ local from main station to the gurudwara and then take a rikshaw 10-15rs you will be in patna sahib gurudwara . Now this seems to be the ideal and most value for money way as in 15-20 minutes you will be there at your destination
