    Dukh Bhanjani Ber Tree

    The Dukh Bhanjani Ber Tree is regarded as Amritsar's most sacred tree.



    Why to visit this place

    The 400-year-old jujube tree, located on the eastern side of the vast Amrit Sarovar, is highly revered by Sikhs due to the legend and faith of Bibi Rajni, whose leprosy-stricken husband was miraculously cured after a dip in the nearby pond. It was then given the name Dukh Bhanjani, which translates as "eradictator of suffering." Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru, is said to have rested here while singing Gurbani in deep devotion to Waheguru. Guru Ram Das Ji, the fourth Sikh Guru, is said to have played a significant role in the establishment of Amritsar.




    Special Tip:

    The pool near the Sacred Tree has separate areas for men and women to swim.
