Gurdwara Bal Leela is also known as Maini Sangat and is in the city of Patna. The history of this Gurdwara dates to the childhood of the 10th Guru of the Sikhs, Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj, who he used to play with other children.
Gurdwara Bal Leela was earlier the palace of King Fateh Chand Maini, and it is said that once the wife of the king was praying to God to have a son like Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj and at that very moment Guruji sat on her lap and called her mother which made her very happy and thus she was known as Dharma Mata. This holy place is a symbol of the immense love of the mother. They served boiled chickpeas to Guruji and his friends to eat and this led to the tradition of offering boiled chickpeas as prasad.
In Gurdwara Bal Leela you will get to see a pair of small shoes from the childhood of Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj and here you will find the Karonda tree which is present there since Guruji's childhood.
