Thimithi – The Fire-Walking Festival of Tamil Nadu!

Gurdwara Baoli Sahib, Mohali


Gurdwara Baoli Sahib is a famous shrine located on the Zirakpur-Kalka Highway in Mohali. There is a popular belief that a descendant of Baba Gurditta Ji meditated at this site for many years. Having heard of him, Guru Gobind Singh Ji halted here on his way to Anandpur Sahib after the Bhangani battle. The Sikh disciple requested Guru Sahib to restore the water supply of the region for the welfare of its villagers.

Guru Gobind Singh Ji shot an arrow into the ground to fulfil his wish, at the point of which sprung a shallow well. Later, a shrine was erected at this sacred site and was named as Gurdwara Baoli Sahib. Pilgrims from across the country visit this place on the day of Amavas to take a dip in the holy water of the Baoli. Of immense religious significance to the Sikh community, this site is recommended to visitors.
