Gurudwara Goindwal Sahib

Gurudwara Goindwal Sahib is very famous Sikh holy place. It is located in Taran Taran district which is in the state of Punjab in India. It is an important center for the sikh religion during the Guruship of the Guru Amar Das Ji, who was the third Sikh guru. This Gurudwara is famous for its 84 steps and then there is a baoli (water body) at the end.
The temple is a beautiful structure and also has quarters for guests to book and stay in. It has very clean facilities and very friendly staff. As I already told you inside the complex there is a well with 84 steps leading to the water. Devotees chant the Japji Sahib at every step and take a dip before moving to the next step because, it is believed that anyone who does Japji Sahab path on every step and then has a bath in the baoli (water body) will attain salvation.
