Gurdwar Bari or Taksali Sangat - From Benaras, Guru Tegh Bahadur did not proceed direct to Patna Sahib but made a detour to Sasaram and Gaya. At Sasaram, in Shahabad district of Bihar, about 80 kilometres southeast of Benaras along the main Mughal Serai-Howarh railway line. There already existed a Sikh Sangat under the local masand Phaggu Mal affectionately called Chacha (uncle) Phaggu by one and all. Chacha Phaggu had constructed a high doorway to his house so that, he told, everyone, When the Guru comes, he would enter the house without having to dismount at the entrance. He had long longed and hoped that the Guru would come to him. Guru Tegh Bahadur fulfilled his desire when he came and stayed at Sasaram for about a month. There are now three Gurdwaras here. first one is Gurdwar Bari or Taksali Sangat.
