  Poanta Sahib

A city founded by Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of the Sikhs, Poanta sahib is situated on the Yamuna River in Sirmour, Himachal Pradesh and is a bustling township with growing industries. The word 'Paonta' means 'space for a foot hold'. When only 16 years old, the Guru left Anandpur Sahib and on the invitation of Raja Maidini Prakash of Sirmour, lived at this beautiful spot for over four years and the historic gurudwara commemorates his stay.

Gurudwara Paonta Sahib
This site is believed to have been the holy Guru Gobind Singh's abode for over 4 years, where he penned the `Dasam Granth'. The Gurudwara houses the Shri Talab Asthan where he disbursed salaries, and the Shri Dastar Asthan where he judged the turban - tying competitions. The Kavi Durbar was the venue of the poetic symposia. A memorial dedicated to Kalpi Rishi, and a museum showcasing the pens of the Guru and the weapons of those times, are also located within the precincts of the Gurudwara.
