The fourth Guru of Sikhism, Guru Ram Das, excavated a tank (1577 AD) which subsequently became known as Amritsar (meaning: Pool of the Nectar of Immortality) and gave its name to the city that grew around it. In due course, a splendid Sikh edifice, Harmandir Sahib (meaning: The Abode of God), rose in the middle of this tank and became the supreme centre of Sikhism. Its sanctorum came to house the adi granth confining compositions of Sikh Gurus and other saints considered to have Sikh values and philosophies e.g. Baba Farid, Kabir, etc. The compilation of the Adi granth was started by the fifth Guru of Sikhism, Guru Arjun Dev.
