Gurdwara Paonta Sahib is revered as the place where 16-year-old Guru Gobind Singh Ji first set his foot after he came to the kingdom of Sirmour on the invitation of Raja Medini Prakash. At the arrival of the Guru, the King along with his courtiers, soldiers, merchants, and entire Sikh congregation went down to welcome him. Pleased with the warm welcome, Guru agreed to spend the next four years at Poanta and left a written account of his life in the kingdom, which he described as the happiest years of his life. As a token of gratitude, Raja Medini Prakash decided to build a fort for the Sikh Guru on the banks of River Yamuna. The fort enclosed a Gurudwara and was surrounded by thick forest. Guru engaged himself in hunting, training his warriors and literary activities here. It is said that Guru lost his anklet in this place and hence, the name Paonta came into being.
