Dera Sahib

Dera SahibEvery year a number of Sikh pilgrims make a beeline to the Sikh pilgrimage sites in Pakistan. Pakistan, in fact is home to a number the Sikh pilgrimage sites that are associated with the lives of different Sikh Gurus. If Nankana Sahib is associated with the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Dev, the Gurudwara Dehra Sahib is connected with the fifth Sikh Guru, Guru Arjan Dev.

Located on the opposite side of the Lahore Fort, the Gurudwara Sahib was built in honour of the fifth Sikh Guru, Guru Arjan Dev, who attained martyrdom near the Lahore Fort. The shrine is believed to have been built by Guru Hargobind Singh. The present structure was constructed by Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

Every year during the month of June, a number of Sikh pilgrims visit the Gurudwara Dehra Sahib. June is the month of his martyrdom.
