Paonta Sahib town is holy place for Sikh community people and was built in the memory of Guru Gobind Singh, 10th Guru of Sikhs.
The main attraction of the religious town is the Paonta Sahib Gurudwara. It is the place where Guru Gobind Singh wrote the pious Dasam Granth. The Gurudwara got its name either from the facts that Guru Gobind Singh ji set his foot here or just because he lost his ornament in the River Yamuna which he used to wear on his feet. A Gurudwara was later constructed, and one can see some of the belongings of Guru ji here even today. Within the walls of the Gurudwara, there is a famous museum, which exhibits various priced possessions of Sikh Guru's like antiques and weapons.
