Gurdwara Baoli Sahib in Chandigarh, India is a very famous shrine.
Devotees come from all over the country to visit this religious place.
Chandigarh Baoli Sahib Gurudwara has a lot of religious significance for
Sikhs. People are of the belief that there was a descendant of Baba
Gurditta Ji, who resided in the Dhakauli village near Zirakpur. He
meditated for many years at this place. On having heard about this great
devotee, the tenth Guru of Sikhs, as in Guru Gobind Singhji visited this
village. This village is about 10 kms away from Chandigarh, situated on
the Zirakpur-Kalka highway. This great worshipper made a request to the
Guru to restore the water supply and quench the thirst of people of this
area. It is believed that the Guru shot an arrow into the ground and a
baoli (shallow well) sprang from there. Later on, a splendid gurudwara
was constructed over there and it was named Baoli Sahib Gurdwara.
Worshippers come over here on every Amavas to take a holy dip in the
water of the baoli.
