A 140 acre property located at Goulburn, NSW, is being developed as a unique project, by Sant Baba Nahar Singh ji Sunehranwale, to share Sikh history, religion and culture with all communities.

 

The aim of this specific project to demonstrate via a landscaped park, the historical and religious travels and preaching’s of the 10 Gurus that contribute to the Sikh Heritage, culture and traditions, and form the basis of the Sikh faith and religion.

 

 The project consists of landscaping the site to show as paths, the journeys made by the Gurus, and then displays will incorporate multi-media facilities for narrating the history of each Guru in different languages.

 

The initial 14 kms of paths have been marked and constructed with basic signage in place, work to commence soon on the accommodation, kitchen and bathing facilities for interested visitors. After this stage the construction of the displays will commence, and a further stage is to organize regular children’s camps open equally to all communities.

 

The site is strategically situated adjacent to the Hume highway, 10 kms north of Goulburn so as to be easily accessible to Canberra, Sydney & Melbourne, and also convenient to travelers from the rest of Australia.

 

To facilitate the development, through donations, Asthan Babe Ke Trust, a religious non-profit charitable trust has been established. This trust is endorsed as an Income Tax exempt charitable entity.

 

Upon completion as well as in the development stages of the project this facility will be open to the Public and all interested groups.

 

 

 

Asthan Babe Ke Trust is working within the guidelines of religious and social responsibilities to teach and guide our younger generation. The underlying view is that with the right education and guidance the next generation will develop good moral values and not stray from a normal responsible lifestyle.

 

The trust aims to promote International integration and social well being of our young generation without the influence of colour and creed. The project will demonstrate in a user-friendly manner how our religious Gurus lived and interrelated with the faith of others and associated with people from all over the world.
