Among his notable contributions, Guru Gobind Singh established the Akal Takht, Meeri Peeri, and Keeratpur Sahib. Engaging in battles at various fronts like Roghila, Keeratpur, Gobindpur, Kartapur, Gurusar, and Amritsar, he became the first Guru to actively participate in wars, instilling martial prowess and confidence among his followers.
Resistance Against Mughal Oppression
Faced with Mughal oppression, Guru Gobind Singh rallied an army against the rulers, fortifying his cities and establishing the Akal Bugya, symbolizing resilience against tyranny. His establishment of the Golden Throne of God in Amritsar was a testament to the Sikh community's steadfastness.
