Sri Guru Arjan Dev Jee was the embodiment of devotion, selfless sewa and universal love.

Guru Arjan Dev Jee laid the foundation of Sri Harmandar Sahib, the present day Golden Temple. Guru Jee designed doors on all four sides of the building which signified acceptance of all four castes and every Religion.

Guru Jee also instituted the principle of Dasvand, by declaring that all Sikhs should donate a tenth of their earnings to charity.

Guru Arjan Dev Jee was the first Sikh guru to be martyred. In 1606, the Muslim Mughal Emperor Jahangir demanded that Guru Arjan Dev jee erase some of the hymns in Guru Granth Sahib Jee that he found offensive. According to the Sikh tradition, Guru Jee refused to remove the lines which led to his shaheedi. Guru Jee is revered as Shaheedan-De-Sartaaj, or the Crown of Martyrs.
