About Hemkund Sahib
Set amidst towering snow-capped mountains and lying beside a lake of pristine blue water, the Sikh shrine of Sri Hemkunt Sahib looks, even to the not-particularly-pious, a place of almost unbelievable beauty and peace. Seven peaks - known as the Sapt Sring- surround the shrine, looming over lush green pastures. The tenth and penultimate guru of the Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh, meditated for years in these mountains, finally leaving his earthly form and uniting with the Almighty. The star-shaped Gurudwara Hemkunt Sahib, at a height of over 4,000 mt, is as such, a memorial to Guru Gobind Singh and a reminder of the saint’s mission. As a daily ritual, two congregational services are held at Gurudwara Hemkunt Sahib, one at 10 am and the other at 1 pm. Kirtan (hymns), ardas (prayer) and the daily hukamnama (the verse which appears at the top of the page of the Guru Granth Sahib, when randomly opened by the granthi, and understood as God’s commandment for the day) are integral parts of the service.Book Your Tour
