BHORA SAHIB GURUDWARA( GURU KA MAHAL),ANANDPUR Here Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib used to sit for meditation and for composing hymns. Residence of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur inherited by Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji; the Sahibzadas the holy sons of the tenth Guru were born here. There is an underground room cut off from the din of life where the ninth Guru used to meditate. Gurudwara Bhora Sahib, a three-storeyed domed building close to Damdama Sahib, was a part of Guru ke Mahal.

Here in a bhora (basement) Guru Tegh Bahadur used to retire for solitary meditation. A 1.5-metre square and half a metre high platform in the middle of the present basement marks the site of the original bhora. The Holy Book is now seated on a platform on the ground floor. Extension of this Gurdwara involving blocks for Guru ka Langar and residential accommodation is in progress.
