Many others also chose to remain. Together they built a room over the platform where they used to sit while holding his court and installed Guru Granth Sahib on it.
They called it Takhat Sahib. Guru Gobind Singh, while conferring Guruship on the holy Book, had himself named Nanded as Abchalnagar (means steadfast city) after the first word of a hymn read at random on the occasion.
