SAHIB GANJ (2513N, 87″38`E), a town in Santhal Pargana district of Bihar, was visited by Guru Tegh Bahadur in 1666. He is said to have stayed here at the Old Nanak Shahi Sangat, commemorating Guru Nanak`s visit in the early sixteenth century. The Sangat still exists. The Guru Granth Sahib was installed here in a hut with a sloping roof of baked dies till 1938, when the present room was constructed by a Marvari businessman Lattu Mall.
An old handwritten copy of the Guru Granth Sahib and several breviaries containing the sacred hymns are preserved in this room. The shrine is managed by hereditary priests. However, Guru Granth Sahib is stacked away in an almirah and Sikh worship is no longer observed.
