Guruduara Dera Sahib, Lahore, is one of the most important Sikh holy sites in Pakistan. The building of the gurdwara stands next to the Shaheedi Asthān or memorial of Guru Arjun Dev, the fifth Sikh Guru, hence is also known as the Gurduara Panjvin Patshahi. In the first part of the presentation, the focus will be the gurduara building, highlighting different ornamental features dateable to nineteenth century as well as a brief overview of later additions to the complex. The second part will look at historical accounts of the gurduara by various nineteenth century historians as well as archival material to trace the additions, modifications on the one hand and the continuity or interruption of traditional practices on the other.
