Here is how you will spend your time
Day 01 : Arrival At Patna
Pick up at Airport / Railway Station on arrival at Patna.
After check in and breakfast in hotel, we will proceed to Harimandir Ji Patna Sahib – Birth place of Guru Gobind Singhji.
Shri Guru Tegbahadur Sahib ji reached here while on his tour to Assam and Bengal. Mata Gujari Ji and Mama Kirpal Das Ji accompanied Guru Sahib. Leaving his family in Patna Sahib, Guru Sahib left for onward journey to Assam and Bengal. Guru Gobind Singh ji was born to Mata Gujari Ji. Guru Sahib spent his childhood here. A groundwater well used by Mata Gujari Ji is still preserved inside Darbar Sahib.
Thereafter, we will visit Gurdwara Gobind Ghat. At this place, in his childhood, Guru Gobind Singh Ji used to play with his friends on the bank of the Ganges. It is also known as Gurdwara Kangan Ghat.
We will then visit Gurdwara Guru ka Bagh. This Gurdwara originally belonged to the local Nawabs, Karim Baksh and Rahim Baksh. Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji, on his way from Assam, visited this place, which was a barren garden (bagh). After Guru Sahib’s visit, the plants in the garden turned green. The Nawabs were very surprised and impressed with this sudden change. They donated this garden to Guru Sahib Ji.
We will then visit Fatuha Gurdwara. It is believed that Guru Nanak Sahib Ji met Saint Kabir at this place.
We will check-in hotel for overnight stay.
Day 02 : After Completing This Visit, Leave For Airport / Railway Station For Return Journey.
After breakfast, we will proceed to Gurudwara Gaighat. This is also known as Gurudwara Pahila Bara. Guru Nanak Dev Ji, during his visit to Patna, stayed here in year 1509. Later, Guru Teg Bahadur Ji stayed at this place along with his family in year 1666.
This place was Bhagat Jaitamal's house. Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji stayed here for about four months. Grind Stone (Chakki) of Mata Gujari Ji and also a tree, where Guru Teg Bahadur Ji tied his horse, are still preserved at this place.
We will then proceed to Guru Handi Sahib (Danapur). In year 1728, Bala Preetam Ji with Mata Gujari and his family moved from Patna Sahib to Anandpur Sahib. The residents of Patna accompanied Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji to see off him. At that time Guru Ji was about 5 years old. People walked about 12 miles and reached Danapur. An old lady whose name was Mata Jasni cooked khichdi for Guru Ji with love & affection and put the pot (Handi) of khichdi before Satguru Ji and requested him to eat. She kept cooking the khichdi in that Handi and kept serving to sangat. So this place is known as Handi Sahib.
After completing this visit, we leave for Airport / Railway Station for return journey.
