Gurudwara Damdama Sahib of Delhi
Gurdwara Damdama Sahib is located near Humayun’s Tomb on the Outer Ring Road, New Delhi.

This gurdwara is associated with the Tenth Guru, Shri Guru Gobind Singhji. It commemorates his meeting in 1707 with Prince Muazzam, later Emperor Bahadur Shah. He had been requested by the Prince for help in his battle for succession for the throne with his brother, after the death of Aurangzeb. Guru Sahib met the Prince at this place and together, they drew up their strategy. They watched elephant and bull fights organized for their entertainment.
