Gurdwara Sri Guru Amar Das Sahib, located on the bank of the river Ganga, is a truly amazing heritage site. The Gurdwara is one of a very few that is relatively untouched from the destruction caused by using concrete and marble in making newer and larger buildings.
This Gurdwara, originally built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, has some early 19th Century wall and ceiling paintings (on the inside) including some of a vedic nature. Although the paintings are not in keeping with Sikh philosophy they are still an important part of the life and history of this Gurdwara. There is no Guru Granth Sahib in the building which only has a Thara marking where Guru Amar Das would sit and hold diwans.
