Sisganj Gurudwara Delhi

Immediately east of the Senehri Masjid, the Sisganj Gurdwara, a Sikh temple, marks the traditional site where, in 1675, Aurangzeb beheaded the ninth guru Teg Bahadur, who had rebelled against the Emperor. Sisjanj Sahib Gurudwara holds very prominent and pious place in Sikhism.

Here also, it is believed that Aurangzeb exhibited the corpse of his elder brother Dara Shikoh, whom he had executed as part of his struggle to gain the throne. Immediately prior to his execution, Dara Shikoh had been paraded ignominiously along Chandni Chowk, clad as a beggar, on the back of an elephant plastered in mud. Flower stalls congregate outside this temple, adding a colourful note.
