History of Hemkunt Sahib
Sri Hemkunt Sahib is the holy taphumi where the King of Kulgidhar, Guru Gobind Singh Sahib spent a long time in his previous form in meditation with Akal Purakh Vahiguru.

“Now let me explain my story
Bring on the hot temptation
Hemkunt hill where
The white string is modified.
In ‘Bachitra Natak’, Guru Gobind Singh Ji describes his life story as where the Hemkunt is situated, there is a mountain called Sapat Srrang, ie the name of Badri Narayan, now in the Himalayan valley, surrounded by seven mountains. Is also very strong. It was here that the Pandava Raja earned his yoga. It was at this place that Guru Ji meditated on Akal Purakh. When Guru Gobind Singh and Akal Purakh became one of the two, the Lord was pleased and obedient, then Guru Gobind Singh was born in Kalyug. Guru Ji writes that the attitude of my Lord was so attached to the world that the world did not feel welcomed for the sake of the sake of the world. The Lord explained it to me and then sent me a specific task for this world trip.
On the visit of the Kalgidhar Emperor to the world, his Sikhs did not intend to visit the land of this Tapo for the most part during the eighteenth century. Under the leadership of Maharaja Ranjit Singh, a large kingdom was established and many Sikh states were formed and the process of exploration and travel of Tapu land began. First of all, Bhai Santokh Singh ji described this Tapu land in the Sun Prakash Granth, and when traveling to Hemkunt Sait Sringe, it was first described by Pandit Tara Singh, Nargot.

Before they could stay and recite the lesson. In this way the monument was erected on this site.
In August 1936 Sant Sohan Singh ji started construction of the Gurdwara. Within three months the room was made 10 by 10 feet and three feet wide. In spite of many difficulties, Sant Ji carried out this great task with the support of the sangat. This time he reached the Holy Bir of Guru Granth Sahib along with other gurdwaras and lit up the Guru Granth Sahib there. The flag was also forgotten. On the day of enlightenment the Guru’s intimate anchor was used on this Tapo land. A large number of associates also arrived. Sant Sohan Singh ji passed away at the feet of Akal Purakh on 13 February 1939 and before that the service was entrusted to Gurmukh Pyar Modan Singh Havaldar and the great saint Khandi Singh ji.
