From widening the streets to sprucing up the Ganga riverfront, the Patna City region and the iconic Sikh shrine nestled in its womb are undergoing a massive facelift as a large number of pilgrims are expected here during the 350th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Gobind Singh.

Patna Sahib, the birthplace of the 10th Sikh guru, is considered one of the holiest places by Sikhs around the world, besides being a major tourism attraction for people from all communities.

The Bihar government has drawn up plans for grand celebrations in January 2017 to mark the historic occasion and is gearing up to put its best foot forward.
