The town is known for being the place where the Khalsa was founded. Anandpur was established by Guru Teg Bahadur on the banks of River Sutlej and it was once fortified by five majestic forts. Of these, the main fort built in red brick by Guru Gobind Singh, is still standing. A subterranean well inside the fort, accessed by a sharp flight of stairs, is an intriguing feature of its architecture. Guru Gobind Singh is said to have remained incognito within the fort’s walls when Aurangzeb’s army invaded the town in his pursuit. It is here that the annual Hola Mohalla festival is held. There is also the Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Museum, which was built in 1983 in commemoration of the third centenary of the Guru’s martyrdom. Anandpur Sahib is 30 minutes from Gaj Retreat.
