Singh, who was born at this very place. Guru Gobind Singh was born on 22nd December, 1666 and was the tenth Guru of

Patna Sahib - Monument for Sikhs

Very nice place. Now it has been renovated. Very important place for Sikhs. Hindus
can also go there. It is the place of 10th Sikh Guru Gobind Singhji. To reach there you
have to go by road or train. By road it is very crowded and you to go through narrow
lanes.
