Qoni Sahib Gurudwara in Panchkula is being renovated and this is the brand new gate as seen from the parking lot. This is one of the historical gurudwaras which saint soldier Guru Gobind Singh visited in the era of the close of the seventeenth century and the decade after 1700.

Guru Gobind Singh came here in 1689 as attested by this tablet in Punjabi script–

The Tricity of Chandigarh perhaps may have given a lead to many other world citizens with its idea of numbering trees. This is stock taking of another kind.

The Horticulture department knows the wealth of its trees is safe by checking the numbers on trees. Tree cutting is a serious offence. It can lead to imprisonment. That is why the tricities of Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula are so green. No one is runninng away with the trees because of this.
