Entering the world in the city of Amritsar during the early morning hours of the day, Guru Tegh Bahadur was born on May 1st, 1621 to Mata Nanaki and Guru Hargobind. He was the youngest in the family, having four elder brothers [Baba Gurditta, Suraj Mal, Ani Rai and Atal Rai], and one elder sister, Bibi Viro.
