Gurdwara Hemkund Shahib is a sikh shrine located in the Chamoli District,Indian State of Uttarakhand and located at an elevation of 4632 mtrs. The Place is surrounded by seven mountain peaks adorned by Nishan Shahib. The Gurdwara is accessible only by foot from Gobindghat on the Rishieksh-Badrinath highway. The Gurdwara is devoted to Guru Govind Singh JI the tenth Sikh Guru which finds mention in Dasam Granth a piece of work believed to be narrated by Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Thus this temple holds prominence among people who believe in Dasam Granth.
Hemkund is a Sanskrit name derived from Hem (“Snow”) and Kund (“bowl”). Dasam Granth says this is the place where Pandu Raja practiced Yoga.
Hemkund is inaccessible from October to April due to snow. Each year the first Sikh pilgrims arrive in May and set to work to repair the damage to the path over the winter. This Sikh tradition is called kar seva (“work service”), a concept which forms an important tenet of the Sikh faith of belonging to and contributing to the community.
