Guru Tegh (Tej) Bahadur was the youngest son of Guru Hargobind and Bibi Nanki and was born at Amritsar on April 1, 1621. From a young age Tegh Bahadur was trained in the martial arts of swordsmanship and horse- riding as well as religious training by the wise Baba Buddha and Bhai Gurdas. Tegh Bahadur spent nine years with his father before settling down at the isolated village of Bakala in 1656 and retired to a life of contemplation. He became known as ‘Tyag Mal’ meaning “the Master of Renunciation”. Here Tegh Bahadur would spend many long years in meditation and prayer. In 1665, Guru Tegh Bahadur founded the town of Chak Nanaki in the honour of his mother, which later came to be known as Anandpur Sahib. He visited Dhaka and Kamrup in the eastern India. On November 11, 1675 Guru Tegh Bahadur was publicly beheaded with a sword on the orders of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb.

The Guru laid down his life protesting against religious persecution. Gurudwara Seesh Ganj and Gurudwara Rakab Ganj at Delhi perpetuate his memory.
