Chatti Padshahi Gurudwara in Srinagar is an important religious centre for Sikhs. It is situated outside the Har Parbat Fort’s southern gate and forms an important part of the religious tourism in the city. The legend of this gurudwara associates it with Guru Hargobind – the sixth Sikh Guru and his ardent devotee Mai Bhagbhari. It is said that she yearned for long to get a glimpse of the Guru, who finally visited her. During the visit, he preached the virtues of Sikhism.
