Rehabilitation of Historic “Naulakha Baag”, Kiratpur Sahib
In the year 2004, SGPC (Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee Amritsar) realized that the majority of the trees of the historic “Naulakha Baag” at Kiratpur Sahib had dried over a period of time. Keeping in view the immediate interventions for restoration of the prestigious garden, SGPC gave this challenging assignment to Baba Sewa Singh Kaar Sewa Wale, present Chairman Nishane-E-Sikhi Charitable Trust (Regd.). “Naulakha Baag” is related to the Sikh history as it was originally developed by Sri Guru Har Gobind Ji, Sixth Guru of the Sikhs. It is the same garden, where, a bud had fallen due to touch of the robe of young Har Rai Ji (Later Seventh Guru of the Sikhs) while he was strolling in this garden. Observing the same, he was cautioned by Sri Guru Har Gobind Ji to be careful to avoid such incidents in future. As a result, Sri Guru Har Rai Ji always controlled his robe with his hands, whenever he entered “Naulakha Baag” throughout his life. This incident shows the importance given to the plants by Sikh Gurus. To restore the garden to the state of Sri Guru Har Gobind Ji’s time was a difficult task. To know the type of trees originally planted in this garden, its description given in the Suraj Prakash Granth and other scriptures of those times was analyzed in detail. It was found that majority of original plants were medicinal plants. A solid effort was made to rehabilitate the garden with the type of trees described in the scriptures. A 7.5 HP submersible pump was installed to draw water from the well. The garden was rehabilitated on war footing and was handed back to SGPC along with well and submersible pump
