Tegh Bahadur

In 1675 Guru Tegh Bahadur, while praying, was  beheaded with the sword of an executioner. Guru‘s body was left in the dust and no one dared to pick it out. A massive storm swept through the city and under the cover of darkness a Sikh named Bhai Jaita collected the sacred head of the Guru.
