About Hemkund Sahib

Hemkund Sahib, the sacred and most revered shrine of Sikh Tourism is situated at an altitude of 4320mtrs along the banks of lake Hemkund. The sacred place is truly recognized as an abode of meditation for the Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth and last of Sikh gurus to seek unification with the Almighty. As per the Hindu mythological belief, Hemkund or Lokpal as popular by this name also, is the place where Lakshmana, the younger brother of Rama, had done his atonement. It was only in the year 1930 that the soldier named Havildar Modan Singh from Bengal Sappers and Miners regiment accidentally came to know about this magnificent place and could relate to the poem "Bachittar Natak". A little later, Havildar Modan Singh along with Sant Sohan Singh, belonging to Tehri Garhwal, and also a retired granthi from the Indian Army laid the foundation of the foundation of present shrine in the year 1937.
