Guru Gobind Singh was born as Gobind Rai and was the tenth Sikh Guru or spiritual master. Born to guardians Guru Tegh Bahadur, who was the ninth Sikh Guru and Mata Gujri—he was the only child. The spiritual master was born in Patna, Bihar. The awesome hallowed place of Takht Sri Patna Harimandar Sahib denotes the site of the house where he was born and put in the initial four years of his life.
Guru Gobind Singh ji was formally blessed as the Sikh pioneer and master at a tender age of nine, making him the remainder of the living Sikh Gurus. There were several contributions made by him for Sikhism in establishing the warrior Sikh community—Khalsa in 1699 was the most prominent one.
