Guru Gobind Singh's immediate family

Guru Gobind Singh (December 22, 1666 in Patna, Bihar, India - October 7, 1708) was the tenth and last of the Ten human form Gurus of Sikhism. He became Guru on November 11, 1675 at the age of nine, following in the footsteps of his father Guru Teg Bahadur. Before Guru Ji left his body, he nominated Sri Guru Granth Sahib (SGGS) as the next perpetual Guru of the Sikhs. Guru Gobind Singh moulded the Sikh religion into its present form that we see today with the formation of the Khalsa in 1699 and completed the final layout of the perpetual Sikh Guru, the Guru Granth Sahib which some will say was his greatest act.

The tenth Guru was the only son of the father, ninth Sikh master, Guru Teg Bahadur and mother Mata Gujri. The grandparents of the tenth Guru were, the sixth Sikh Guru Guru Hargobind and Mata Nanaki.

Guru Gobind Singh and Mata Jito/Sundri had four sons who were: Sahibzada Ajit Singh, Sahibzada Jujhar Singh, Sahibzada Zorawar Singh and Sahibzada Fateh Singh
