    The famous historical town of Doaba (Bilga) is well-known for the fifth Sikh Guru - Guru Arjan Dev Ji. It is famous as the holy clothes of Guru Arjan Dev ji are kept here in the memory of Guru Arjan Dev Ji.


    Guru Ji reached the town in 1646A.D. He stayed for two days to take rest while going to village Mau Sahib for wedding ceremony. Acc. to Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha's dictionary , Guru ji's marriage was arranged with Mata Ganga Ji.


    At that time Bilga was only in the shape of seven huts. The people of Bilga served Guru Ji heartly. Guru Ji was pleased and blessed them.


    Guru Ji presented his holy blessings - Saili (cap), chola, pyjama, Batva, Dushala, Simrana Mala and Chandan ki chawanki after taking bath.


    Every year on the occasion of marriage of Guru Arjan Dev Ji, a great fair on 2nd, 3rd and 4th July is celebrated. On the last day i.e. 4th July, the holy clothes of Guru Sahib are shown to general public before the closing ceremony of Diwan. SO all the people are requested to visit this holy place and get blessings of Guru ji.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
