INSTALLATION OF THE GURU GRANTH SAHIB IN THE HARMANDIR SAHIB /SIKH

The Sikhs’ fifth Guru, Arjan Dev, installed the volume of scripture, the Adi Granth, on this date. It consisted of the hymns of the first five Gurus plus those of other ‘saint-poets’. Hymns of Guru Tegh Bahadur were later added to form the present Guru Granth Sahib.
