Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji Memorial, Delhi

This exclusive programme was made by the Sangat TV team and shows the newly constructed Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji Memorial built by the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC). The site pays homage to the ultimate sacrifice of the ninth Guru Ji of the Sikhs — Dhan Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji, who was publicly beheaded at Chandni Chownk, Delhi in 1675 to save the Hindu faith and allow freedom of religious practise.

The memorial was inaugurated in 2009 and is spread out on more than 10 acres on the GT road of the Delhi-Haryana border. Some of the distinct features of this memorial are: The Central Khanda which is 24 metres high weighing 16.5 metric tonnes. The base comprises of a Lotus flower with 8 petals made of hand beaten stainless steel, signifying selflessness, a sense of being able to give away without any expectations.

Guru Ji’s three disciples are represented by the three stainless steel semi-arches which are over 15m high and placed in a semicircular plan.

There are ten monoliths with dry granite cladding represent the ten Sikh gurus with their respective teachings engraved on them in Punjabi, Hindu, Urdu and English so that people of different cultures can visit and learn about the message of the Sikh Gurus.
