Guru Hargobind Sahib was the only son of Guru Arjan Dev, who ascended the throne of Sikh Guruship on the martyrdom of his father when he was only 11 years old.

Guru Sahib built Akal Takht as the temporal seat of authority opposite the Golden Temple in Amritsar. He built a small fort, called Lohgarh and kept a small army (cavalry). He was the first Sikh Guru who ordained his Sikhs to bring offerings of weapons and horses.

ਉਹ ਗੁਰੂ ਅਰਜਨ ਦੇਵ ਜੀ ਦੇ ਇਕਲੌਤੇ ਪੁੱਤਰ ਸਨ, ਜੋ ਸਿਰਫ 11 ਸਾਲ ਦੀ ਉਮਰ ਵਿਚ ਆਪਣੇ ਪਿਤਾ ਦੀ ਸ਼ਹਾਦਤ ‘ਤੇ ਸਿੱਖ ਗੁਰਗੱਦੀ ਦੀ ਗੱਦੀ ‘ਤੇ ਬਿਰਾਜਮਾਨ ਹੋਏ ਸਨ।

ਉਸਨੇ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤਸਰ ਵਿੱਚ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਹਰਿਮੰਦਰ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਦੇ ਸਾਹਮਣੇ ਸ਼ਕਤੀ ਦੇ ਪ੍ਰਤੀਕ ਵਜੋਂ ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖ਼ਤ ਦਾ ਨਿਰਮਾਣ ਕੀਤਾ। ਆਪਜੀ ਨੇ ਇੱਕ ਛੋਟਾ ਜਿਹਾ ਕਿਲ੍ਹਾ ਬਣਾਇਆ, ਜਿਸਨੂੰ ਲੋਹਗੜ੍ਹ ਕਿਹਾ ਜਾਂਦਾ ਹੈ ਅਤੇ ਇੱਕ ਛੋਟੀ ਫੌਜ (ਘੋੜਸਵਾਰ) ਰੱਖੀ। ਆਪਜੀ ਪਹਿਲੇ ਸਿੱਖ ਗੁਰੂ ਸਨ ਜਿਨ੍ਹਾਂ ਨੇ ਆਪਣੇ ਸਿੱਖਾਂ ਨੂੰ ਹਥਿਆਰਾਂ ਅਤੇ ਘੋੜਿਆਂ ਦੀਆਂ ਭੇਟਾਂ ਲਿਆਉਣ ਲਈ ਨਿਯੁਕਤ ਕੀਤਾ ਸੀ।
