The Guru laid the foundation of the Golden Temple (Harmandir Sahib) in Amritsar. He also declared that all Sikhs should donate a tenth of their earnings to charity. The greatest contribution he made to the Sikh faith was to compile all of the past Gurus’ writings into one book, now the Holy Scripture: the Guru Granth Sahib. It was this holy book that made him a martyr.
The construction of the temple at Amritsar was started by the Guru and its foundation stone was laid by the reputed Muslim Sufi Saint, Mian Mir. The Adi Granth was formally installed at the Amritsar temple on the annual gathering of the Sikhs. From the very start it was recognized as the Sikh scripture.
