Gurudwara Sri Kangan Ghat Sahib situated in the Distt City Patna. It is situated on walking distance from Gurudwara Takht Sri Harmandir ji PATNA Sahib. Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji (Gobind RAI ji) used to play here with his Mates during his childhood.(In those times river Ganges used to flow here). Once Guru Sahib had thrown the golden bracelet in Ganges, as he was not fond of Temporal Wealth. Another Important event is meeting of Gobind RAI with Priest Shiv Dutt, who was worshipper of Rama. He used to worship Rama through Idol of King Rama and perform daily rituals like Keeping food before idol and wait for Rama to come. Guru Sahib guided him that Rama could not be attained through Idols, as it is present in all aliveness. Adi Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji states "Sabey Ghat Ram bole Ram Boley, Ram Bina ko boley re". Rama could be attained within himself. The guidance of true Rama opened eyes of Shivdutt and he left idol worship.
Gurdwara Sri Kangan Ghat Sahib is situated on the bank of the river Ganga is about 300 meters from Takht Sri Harmandir Sahib.
In his childhood, the yound Gobind Rai would play by the river bank with his friends. Baal Gobind Rai would make two groups of soldiers and play fight with each other. Gobind Rai would train his friends to overcome their enemies and to win forts. The winning group would be honoured with gifts.
Once young Gobind Rai was given a gift of some very expensive Gold Kangan (bangles). Gobind Rai did not value maya (material possessions) and threw one of his Kangan into the river. When Mata Gujri asked him where he had thrown his Kangan, the young Gobind Rai removed his remaining Kangan and threw it after the first. Mata Gujri loved her son very much and was never cross with him. She asked him why he threw his Kangan away, Guru Ji explained that they were worthless to him as was all maya. By throwing his Kangan away Gobind Rai taught people to reject maya.
On the same river bank Gobind Rai had blessed Pandit Shiv Dutt, a devotee of Sri Ram Chandra, with peace. The pandit became a Sikh and directed people not to worship stone idols but devote themselves to the One True God.
Ghat means a place on the bank, usually paved, for bathing, drawing water or for landing or harbouring boats. This river was near Gurdwara Sri Kangan Ghat Sahib but has with time receded since away to the north. At present there is a small Gurdwara but according to a new scheme, more land has been alloted to the Takht Sri Harmandir Sahib Patna Committee adjoining to the present structure of Kangan Ghat. According to this scheme old structure of Gurudwara is to be rebuilt as per the architecture of Takht Sri Harmandir Sahib Patna.
