Guru Har Krishan Ji was our 8th Guru Ji, born July 7, 1656 to parents Guru Har Rai Ji and Krishan Kaur. He became Guru at a mere 5 yrs old. Emperor Aurangzeb summoned Guru Ji to delhi at the request of Guru Ji’s jealous brother, Ram Rai. Upon arrival in Dehli Guru Ji stayed with Raja Jai Singh. This site is now Gurdwara Bangla Sahib. There was a smallpox epidemic in Delhi at the time, and Guru Ji cured the many devotees that flocked to see him. Unfortunately Guru Ji too fell ill with smallpox and named “Baba Bakale” (Guru Teg Bahadur Ji) as his successor. For more information, please visit the websites below.
