“It’s a historic day and a matter of pride for us…. Modi Ji is the first Prime Minister who visited takhat Sri Harimandir Ji Patna Sahib,” former Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told reporters after the PM’s visit.

Prasad, who is seeking re-election from Patna Sahib Lok Sabha constituency, was also present when the PM visited. “Modi Ji cooked food at the gurdwara, baked rotis and served the community kitchen (langar) to people with his own hands,” Prasad said.

Takhat Sri Patna Sahib also known as Takhat Sri Harimandir Ji, Patna Sahib, is one of the five takhats of the Sikhs, located in the state capital. The construction of the takhat was commissioned by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in the 18th century to mark the birthplace of Guru Gobind Singh. Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh guru, was born in Patna, in 1666. He also spent his early years here before moving to Anandpur Sahib.
