The ‘Darshan Didar Yatra’, carrying the relics of three Sikh gurus, continued with its onward journey on Wednesday moving from Tarn Taran, the town founded by fifth guru Arjan Dev, to Khadoor Sahib, the town founded by second guru Angad Dev.

From Khadoor Sahib, the relics moved onto Baba Bakala, the town where ninth guru Teg Bahadar was recognised as the guru of the Sikhs. After the night’s halt at Baba Bakala, the relics will move to Amritsar on Thursday. Led by ‘panj pyaras’ a large number of people from the surrounding villages lined up the road to Khadoor Sahib to get a glimpse of the relics. The same was the case when the yatra moved from Khadoor sahib to Baba Bakala.

Prominent among those present when the yatra started from here were Giani Nirmal Singh, head granthi, Sri Darbar Sahib, Tarn Taran; Baba Avtar Singh Sursingh Wale; Ranjit Singh Brahmpura, Member of Parliament; Harmit Singh Sandhu, chief parliamentary secretary; and Ravinder Singh Brahmpura, chairman, district planning committee.

The yatra had started on May 6 from Sri Dukhniwaran Sahib Gurdwara in Patiala, and after passing through all districts of the state it would culminate at Anandpur Sahib next month.
