Hemkund Sahib

 
Hemkund Sahib Links
Hemkund SahibSituated at a height of 15,200 ft. above sea level, in picturesque surroundings, as the Shabad of Guru Bani states, the pious place is sheltered by seven snow clad peaks of gigantic mounts - Hemkund Paravat.

Hemkund has been surrounded by seven mountains of snow clad peaks, and their reflection in the Lake is visible. The water of beautiful lake at this place is sweet and clean. The lake is full of lotus flowers, around which the blooming grassy fields are existent, which gives a clear picture of shining beauty of splendid grandeur.

Pilgrims are requested that if they are in great number they should remain at Hemkund and are in lesser members, they should return to Ghanghariya. Flowers Valley is at a distance of 4 K.M. from Ghangariya from where a path goes to Hemkund and another foot-path to Flowers Valley. Literally, "Hem" means snow and "Kund" means tank and so the name is "Hemkund" which has been derived from these two words "Hem" & "Kund". The most suitable period for journey to Hemkund is between August and September every year, after which journey is rather impossible due to extreme cold.

Guru Govind Singh Ji made a reference in the holy book of Dasham Granth Sahib that he had meditated on the shores of a lake, which was surrounded by seven snow-covered peaks and it is believe that Guru Sahib had chosen Hemkund for meditation and he was famous as Rishi Medhasa in one of his previous birth. This holy lake was discovered by Havaldar Sohan Singh in 1930 and has become a pilgrimage centre of Sikhs and Hindus and people of different religions and nationalities.
