BANDI CHOR DIVAS (literally means the day of release of the prisoner)
This day commemorates the return of the sixth Guru, Sri Hargobind Ji, to the holy city of Amristar after his release from detention. Guru Hargobind Singh ji was imprisoned by Emperor Jahangir because he seem to be afraid of the Guru's growing power. Guru ji had agreed to his own release on the condition that the other fifty-two detainees would also be released. He was therefore known as the " Bandi Chorrh". He arrived at Amritsar on the day of Diwali and the Golden Temple was also was lit with hundreds of lamps. Thereafter day came to be known as the "Bandi Chhor Divas" (the day of freedom).
