Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru, was born in Patna, Mughal Empire on 22 December 1666. He also spent his early years here before moving to Anandpur Sahib. Besides being the birthplace of Gobind Singh, Patna was also honored by the visits of Guru Nanak and Guru Tegh Bahadur.
The construction of the takht was commissioned by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in the 19th century to mark the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh. Due to the damage caused by an earthquake in 1934, the building was rebuilt between 1948 and 1957 for ₹20,00,000.
