Sri Guru Teg Bahadur laid the foundation of Sri Anandpur Sahib - the city of divine bliss in 1664 A.D. The site for the museum was selected near the main approach of the historic Gurudwara Takhat Sri Keshgarh Sahib in conformity with the historical significance and ceremonial symbolism of the Gurudwara. This museum is dedicated to the memory of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur who made the supreme sacrifice for the sake of libration of the oppressed and for freedom of conscience and belief. The great saga of Sikh history of this period is full of struggles and sacrifices which are depicted here through the medium of oil paintings. These paintings have been done by eminent Punjab artists: Kirpal Singh, Jaswant Singh and Devinder Singh. The paintings have a specific bearing on the significant and epoch-making period of the Sikh history.
