Seeking the support of Sangat for Gurdwara Gyan Godri Sahib, Haridwar

We have made it very clear that Sikhs will not compromise to establish Gurdwara Gyan Godri on some another place till the Government doesn’t allocate the original venue of Gurdwara Gyan Godri on banks of Ganga river in Haridwar. 

Gurdwara Gyan Godhri, Haridwar is the historical Gurdwara associated with Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji. The Two Sikh Janam Sakhis narrate about the visit of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji to Haridwar which took place on Vaisakhi in 1504 AD.

Historical site of Gurdwara – at the banks of river Ganga

Gurdwara Gyan Godri Sahib was constructed on the banks of river Ganga where Guru Sahib had rejected the superstitious rituals and talked about omnipresent God.

Gurdwara Sahib was demolished during anti-Sikh movement days. The Sangat is trying ever since for the restoration of the Guru’s house. The same space is now occupied by an office of Scouts and Guides.

This year, Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee has given a clarion call to  Sikhs across the world to stand united to re-acquire the land of Gurdwara Gian Godri at Haridwar. The beginning of Gyan Godri campaign for the reconstruction of the historic Gurdwara Sahib was started with the Path of Japji Sahib on May 14, 2017.

We had urged the Sangat to come together in Gurdwara Manji Sahib in Amritsar collectively to read the Japji Sahib Bani.

Recently, the municipal corporation record of 1935 depicts existence of a Gurdwara near Har ki Pauri. Documents of the Bharat Scouts and Guides office also relate to a Gurdwara at the site. Surfacing of this evidence will boost our campaign to re-establish the Gurdwara Sahib.

We have made it very clear that Sikhs will not compromise to establish Gurdwara Gyan Godri on some another place till the Government doesn’t allocate the original venue of Gurdwara Gyan Godri on banks of Ganga river in Haridwar.

I seek the support of people of all religion in coming forward to restore the historical Gurdwara Sahib at Haridwar. I wish to share it with all that Haridwar is the place during fourth ‘Udaasi’, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji had shared the message of humanity. We all should raise a collective and stronger voice so that Uttar Pradesh Government re-establishes the Gurdwara that reflects the valuable teachings of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
