A visit to the Guru Tegh Bahadur Museum, Anandpur Sahib

I recently visited the Guru Tegh Bahadur Museum, Anandpur Sahib. It was an absolutely fascinating visit. I enjoyed viewing the many paintings of incidents from Sikh history - though some of them were a bit on the gory side - but the standout feature were the huge models of gurdwaras and other Sikh buildings. These intricate models are housed in a large airy room that truly does them justice. It was a real honour and a privilege to visit.

The Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Museum was built in 1983 in commemoration of the third centenary of the Guru’s martyrdom. Located near Takht Sri Keshgarh Sahib, the museum’s architecture reflects that of the gurdwara. A large collection of paintings, narrating the history of the Sikhs, including depictions from Guru Tegh Bahadur’s life, is displayed here.

The museum is open 10am – 5pm (Tues-Sun) / Closed: Monday / Entry: Free
