History
The Fifth Nanak, Guru Arjan Sahib, conceptualized the idea of creating a central place of worship for the Sikhs. He himself designed the architecture of Sri Harmandir Sahib. Earlier to this Guru Amardas, the third Nanak chalked out the plan of excavating a holy tank or Amrit Sarovar, from which the name Amritsar was derived. The plan of Amardas was executed by Guru Ramdas Sahib under the supervision of Baba Budha ji. The land for the site was acquired by the earlier Guru Sahibs on payment or free of cost from the Zamindars (landlords) of native villages. The plan to establish a town settlement was also made. Therefore, the construction work on the Sarovar(the tank) and the town started simultaneously in 1570. The work on both projects completed in 1577 A.D.

The foundation of the Golden temple was laid by a Muslim Saint Hazrat Mian Mir ji of Lahore on 1st of Magh, 1644 Bikrmi Samvat(December,1588). The construction work was directly supervised by Guru Arjan Sahib himself. The building work completed in 1601 A.D. on Bhadoon Sudi 1st, 1661 Bikrmi Samvat (August/September,1604). The Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs, was installed in the Harmandir Sahib in 1604, three years after its completion.
