Paonta Sahib

REVERED FOR THE MEMORY OF SHRI GURU GOBIND SINGH

PAONTA SAHIB

Paonta Sahib is a sacred town built in the memory of Shri Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Guru of the Sikhs. The road passes through Sataun and follows the Giri River along beautiful scenery. Situated on the banks of the Yamuna River, Paonta Sahib is a bustling township with growing industries. It is one of the important holy places for the Sikhs that retains tangible memories of Guru Gobind Singh in the form of his weapons and a majestic Gurudwara. The place recalls his presence with the name of the city, which is derived from Paonta meaning “foot“, maybe because he visited this place or according to an alternate story, he lost an ornament called “Paonta“ while bathing in the Yamuna River. Vishawkarma Temple and few other Hindu temples are also located in Paonta Sahib.
