One of the five main Takhat of Sikhism, the Hazur Sahib Takhat of Nanded or Takhat Sachkhand Sri Hazur Abchalnagar Sahib (Gurudwara Sri Hazur Sahib) is a major tourist attraction for followers of Sikh religion. Situated on the banks of river Godavari, the Hazur Sahib Nanded is famous because of the tenth Guru of Sikhism, Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. He left his mortal body along with his horse Dilbag for heaven from this very place. There is a Gurdwara in the Hazur Sahib Complex and it is known as Sachkhand.
Guru Gobind Singh Ji was stabbed at this place in 1708. He set up camp and took the help of a British doctor to recuperate at Nanded. This is the very place where Guru Gobind Singh Ji ended the tradition of naming humans as gurus and conferred the title of Guru to the holy book of Sikhism Guru Granth Sahib. Since then no human has been declared as the guru in Sikhism. Hence this place holds special importance in the Sikh religion.
During his last days, Guru Gobind Singh Ji held his Darbar at this place and get the Guru ka Langar going along with the help of his devotee named Bhai Santokh Singh. Guru Gobind Singh Ji named Nanded as Abchalnagar (the steadfast City). The present building was constructed by the great Sikh king Maharaja Ranjit Singh Ji during the 19th century. The complex of Takhat Sahib is a sprawling one with the main attraction being an inner room on which Guru Granth Sahib is installed. This was the same place where Guru Gobind Singh Ji used to hold his Darbar during his last days. This place is also called Angitha Sahib.
During the day many relics like bows and arrows, stone-studded Steel shield, a golden dagger, a broad sword, a mace and other historical weapons used by Guru Gobind Singh Ji and his followers are kept on display on a marble platform. It took hundreds of artisans about five years to build this place and it was opened for public viewing in 1837. A major positive thing about this place is that it is open for people of all religions.
