    Some years ago, a group of us went to Amritsar and there our taxi driver brought us to a few Gurdwara's around Amritsar district.

    One of the Gurdwaras had a wall(strong solid wall) which "shook" (or at least felt like it was shaking) when you sat on it.

    I'm looking to find out the history behind this shaking wall.

    Can anyone help please. Thank you

    You are talking about the "Jhoolde Mehal" gurudwara near Amritsar. The walls exist since the time of the 6th Guru, who had them built. The legend runs like this :
    Guru Sahib was moving along with the Mughal emperor Jahangir in the Amritsar area, and his Sangat talked about the way the elephants of the Mughal army swayed, upon which Guru Sahib had the walls built and blessed that if a Sikh would perform ardas and hit the wall, it shall shake like an elephant, & the blessing works till date.
     
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!
