Sri Guru Amar Das Ji (the third Guru or the third Nanak) stayed in Goindwal for 33 years where he established a new centre for preaching Sikhism.

Guru Amar Das also developed a new system of propagating the Sikh faith in far off places known as the Manji System, for Sikhs he stopped the practice of Sati (ceremony of burning a hindu widow with the body of her late husband, which hindus still follow), wrote the Anand Sahib Gurbani at Goindwal and made many other contributions to Sikhi.

Goindval is where Guru Amar Das met Bhai Jetha (Sri Guru Ram Das Ji), the next Guru. Sri Guru Arjan Sahib Ji was also born there on 15 April 1563. It is called axis of Sikhism as it was the first main center of Sikhi. Today the Goindwal Sahib is visited as a prime tourist destination and the massive langar or the community kitchen provides food to a large number of visitors every day.
