in which the word 'Takht' has been used in Gurmat conception is unique.
The 'Takht' is not subject decay. Rather it is eternal . It is free
from the limitations of time and place. Such a conception of the 'Takht'
has been invested with empiricism by the Ten Gurus. This has become
a proven fact that 'Takht' is not a totalization of the activities
of the individual/individuals. Rather, it evidences impartiality,
independence and sovereignty of the ways of the Guru Panth. Gurdwaras
are a common heritage of one and all Sikhs. The 'Takhts' relate to
Gursikhs only. All the 'Five Takhts' are a fountainhead of inspiration
and a centre of enlightenment for the entire Khalsa Panth. Each 'Hukum'

a succinct historical information about them and feel inspired to
