Guru Hargobind

Welcome to our Guru Hargobind section on iChild!

This Sikh Festival of Guru Hargobind's birthday is celebrated on 5th July.

Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji was the sixth Guru of the Sikhs, and like all the others he was a God in the form of a human. His father was Guru Arjan Dev Ji and his mother was Mata Ganga. Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji contributed many things to the Sikh cause. He was the first Guru who emphasised that Sikhs be saint-soldiers in order to protect the downtrodden.

Sikh Diwali is on 12th November 2023 and 1st November 2024. This festival celebrates Guru Hargobind's release from prison while also saving 52 other prisoners.
