Gurudwara Handi Sahib, known as Handiwali Sangat, traces its origin back to the time when six-year-old Guru Gobind Singh was on his way to Punjab. As the story goes, it was here that young Gobind Rai and Mata Gujri made their first halt out of Patna and Mai Pardhani, an old devotee of Guru Teg Bahadur, served them a handi (clay pitcher) of Khichdi (rice and lentils).
Gurudwara Handi Sahib with a verandah on three sides and a walled compound on the banks of a seasonal stream, locally known as Son Nadi. A unique tradition in this gurudwara is a late evening prayer in memory of Gobind Rai’s habit of worshipping after returning from play at dusk. An annual function is also held under the management of the Takhat Sri Harmandir Sahib Ji Patna.
