History of Takhat Sachkhand Shri Hazur Abchalnagar Sahib Gurudwara
Guru Gobind Singh held his courtyard and worshippers here while he was getting better after being attacked by two assassins. One of the aggressors stabbed Guru Gobind Singh, but was killed by him with a single stroke of his talwar. The other was killed by his followers as he tried to run away. Guru's wound was deep but healed after being stitched by a European medical doctor.
Sikhs built a room above the platform where Guru Gobind Singh would sit whilst holding his courtyard. They called it Takhat Sahib. While presenting Guruship on the sacred Book, Guru Gobind Singh himself named Nanded as "Abchalnagar" after the first word of a mantra read randomly on the event.
Ranjit Singh had constructed the current building of the Takhat Sahib with money, artisans and labour sent from the Punjab throughout the early 1830s. In 1956 an Act was passed by the government of Hyderabad under which the management of the Takhat Sahib and other historical Gurdwaras was lawfully placed under a 17-member Gurudwaras Board and a five-member Managing Committee.
