Gurudwara Bal Leela Sahib ,Patna

Gurdwara Bal Leela Maini in a narrow lane close to Takht Sri Harmandir Sahib , Patna marks the house where King Fateh Chand Maini lived. His childless Queen had developed special fondness for the young Guru Gobind Singh ( Gobind Rai Ji ), GURU SAHIB often came here to play. Queen expressed the feeling of having child like BAL GOBIND RAI JI. But GURU SAHIB told her that theres no one like me, i am the only one. and Sat in her laps that from today onwards i am your son and you are my dharam mata. And your name will remembered ever with my name in this world. GURU SAHIB told queen that he is hungry. She fed GURU SAHIB and his playmates, at this demand, with boiled and salted gram. Even now boiled and salted gram is served as prasad (consecrated food) in this GURUDWARA SAHIB. GURU SAHIB also blessed this place that yatra to Patna Sahib will not be completed untill yatris visit here.Unlike the other shrines in Patna Sahib, is served by Nirmala Sikhs. A wood carving on the old front door is dated August 28, 1668, but the hall housing the sanctum and other blocks of rooms in the inner compound have been reconstructed during recent decades.
