After spending his childhood in Patna, he left for Anandpur in the foothills of the Sivalik range of mountains in March, 1672. He was barely nine when his father, Guru Teg Bahadur, embraced martyrdom and he was formally installed Guru on 29.03.1676. He had four sons, all of whom died during his lifetime – two were killed in battle with Mughal forces while other two were executed by Mughal army.
