The Gurudwara Sisganj is one of the nine historical gurudwaras of Delhi. It has an interesting history. The gurudwara is built in memory of Guru Tegh bahadur, the ninth Sikh Guru. It was here that the Guru was beheaded as per the orders of the then Mughal emperor Aurangazeb as the Guru denied converting to Islam.

Decades after, Baba Baghel Singh, an ardent follower of the Guru discovered the place where the Guru was beheaded and got a guridwara built in honour of him.
The Gurudwara is located in Chandni Chowk in Delhi. The gurudwara that was built in 1930 still has the trunk in the place where the Guru was beheaded. The attractions near the Gurudwara are the Red Fort, Feroz Shah Kotla and the Jama Masjid.
