Gurdwara Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Mathura is situated outside Tilak Dwar of the old city on Guru Tegh Bahadur Marg opposite the General Post Office. The site is referred to in older accounts as Karis Tilla, ie. Mound of Karis. Guru Tegh Bahadur stayed here for three days. A small platform in a modest hut existed here as a memorial to the Guru`s visit. It was maintained by udasi's until the early nineteen forties when Sikh residents in Mathura acquired the site. A new double storey building was constructed, with the Sikh troops of the Mathura garrison contributing liberally in money and labour.
More buildings have been added since, and at present the Gurdwara is a compact block of numerous double storey rooms around a paved courtyard. The rectangular hall, with verandahs in front and rear, is on the first floor approached by a wide staircase covered with white marble slabs. Guru Tegh Bahadur Adarsh Vidyalaya, with classes from Montessori to the eighth standard is also housed on the premises. A museum containing pictures depicting scenes from Sikh history was set up in one of the rooms during August 1977. The Gurdwara, registered as Sri Guru Singh Sabha, is managed by a local committee.
