    Haryana’s First Sikh Museum and Heritage Center Will Soon be Built In Kurukshetra

    In a significant move, Haryana’s government has given the go-ahead for the establishment of the state’s inaugural Sikh museum and heritage center in Kurukshetra, inaugurated with a flag hoisting ceremony.

    This museum will be located in a three-acre theme park beside the sixth Sikh Guru’s Gurudwara, a long-awaited project by the local Sikh community. The Kurukshetra Development Board has transferred the land to the Haryana Department of Archaeology and Survey for this noble initiative.

    Subhash Sudha, a legislator, expressed gratitude to Chief Minister Manohar Lal for responding to the persistent demand of the Sikh community. Kurukshetra holds immense significance in Sikh history as the first Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Maharaj, graced the area during the solar eclipse on Baisakhi in 1558.

    Kurukshetra also witnessed visits from the third Sikh Guru, Guru Amar Das Maharaj, with his family in 1560, and the sixth Guru, Guru Hargobind Sahib, in May 1620. The sixth Guru chose a spot on this sacred land, which holds a special place in Sikh history.

    In addition, the eighth Guru, Guru Har Krishan Sahib, arrived in Kurukshetra in 1665, while the tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj, visited the area during the solar eclipse in 1688-86. These visits were instrumental in imparting spiritual wisdom and guidance to the Sikh community.

    This venture promises to be a grand and captivating addition to the cultural landscape of Haryana, celebrating the profound heritage of the Sikh community.
