5. TAKHAT SHRI HAZOOR SAHIB NANDED
Takhat Shri Darbar Sahib Hazur Sahib is a Sikh Gurudwara located on the banks of the River Godavari at the city of Nanded in the
state of Maharashtra, Western India. The structure is built at the location where GURU GOBIND SINGH JI left this world. It is one of the five 'Takhats' (Seats of Temporal authority) in Sikhism. The inner room of the temple is called the Angitha Sahib and is built over the place where
GURU GOBIND SINGH JI was cremated in 1708. Sikh historical records show that GURU GOBIND SINGH JI ordered his Sikhs not to create a monument to
commemorate his leaving this world, anyone who defied this order would suffer the death of his/her offspring. Interestingly, knowing all these facts Maharaja Ranjit Singh ordered its construction, and most of Maharaja Ranjit Singh's offspring died, either through bad luck or unusual circumstances. The temple was finished in 1839; later that year, Maharaja Ranjit Singh died. After a series of killings and accidents, most of Maharaja Ranjit Singh's off springs died, with an exception of Daleep Singh who was sent to UK. There he married Bamba Miller and had 6 children. All the 6 children died without an issue. Thus all the offspring of Maharaja Ranjit Singh died.
