The Golden Temple is built around a sarovar (man-made pool), that was completed in 1577 by Guru Ram Das Ji (the fourth Sikh Guru). In 1589, the foundation stone of the temple was laid by a Muslim Pir of Lahore – Sai Mian Mir on the request of Guru Arjan Dev Ji – the fifth Sikh Guru. In 1604, a copy of the Adi Granth was placed in Harmandir Sahib by Guru Arjan Dev Ji, calling the site Ath Sath Tirath (meaning, "shrine of 68 pilgrimages").
