Gurdwara Manji Sahib Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Patshahi Nauvin, also called Darbar Sahib, is a flat- roofed rectangular room, marking the site where Guru Tegh Bahadur is believed to have stayed and preached. Daily gatherings for religious prayers, kirtan and discourses take place here. Sacred relics including two swords, one muzzle-loading gun, a seal and an old copy of the Guru Granth Sahib are preserved here in a domed cubicle behind the sanctum. Another relic, a mirror, said to have been presented to Guru Gobind Singh by the sangat of Delhi, is displayed in the hall. Of the two swords, one is believed to have belonged to Guru Gobind Singh and the other, heavy and double-edged, to Baba Deep Singh. The muzzle-loader is believed to be the one that Guru Gobind Singh received as a present.
