Another place where my heart resides

Baba Bakala.
The place where Guru Tayg Bahadur meditated for 22-26 years (different numbers from different sources).
Now surrounded by a 9 story tower to commemorate the ninth Guru.
Another Gurdwara next to the location.

Dhan Dhan Siri Guru Tayg Bahadur Ji! WaheGuru WaheGuru WaheGuru WaheJio!

The son of Guru Hargobind, Atal Rai started displaying his supernatural powers by performing miracles and revived a dead playmate of his. When Guru Hargobind heard about this he reprimanded his son saying, "My son has started dissipating his spiritual powers without discrimination. Shall our occupation now be to revive everyone's dead son and interfere ever in God's will, we who are enjoined to accept whatever good or bad comes to us in His pleasure." Atal Rai took the Guru's reprimand so seriously that he soon passed away after that. His death caused Guru Hargobind much grief and he constructed a nine storey structure called the Bunga of Baba Atal at Amritsar to commemorate the nine short years of his sons life.

Thank you Ji for the comment. I do have pictures of the Baba Atal tower on my blog. This one looks very similar to the Baba Atal tower, but it is actually different. This one is located in Bakala, above the spot where Guru Tayg Bahadur meditated for many years.
