Akal Takht was founded by Guru Hargobind on June 15, 1606, and was established as a place from which to solve the spiritual and temporal problems of the Sikh community. The Akal Takht was built slightly lower than the Harmandir Sahib, implying the order of importance that the pursuit of spiritual grace must always guide. The Throne of the Immortal or Eternal was installed first among the five thrones by Guru Hargobind Sahib in 1606 near the Harmandir Sahib, in the Golden Temple complex, the site of the highest representative of the Sikh community.
