On April 17, 2006 The Tribune reported, "Ensconced in the aura of the majestic and historic Takht Sri Keshgarh Sahib, the first phase of the Khalsa Heritage Complex, the world's largest story-telling museum on the Sikh community, opens [in Anandpur Sahib] tomorrow. The first phase comprises a library, an auditorium and exhibition halls. The complex will be another jewel in the crown of this holy place where Guru Gobind Singh founded the Khalsa Panth 307 years ago. The impressive structure of the complex emanates peace and serenity that smoothly gels with the blissful foothills of the lowers Shivaliks. The Takht Sri Keshgarh Sahib is located just a hundred meters away while the famous Naina Devi temple is located on the mountain top that forms the backdrop of the complex. In its final shape -- expected to be completed in the next 12 months -- it will showcase the history of the Sikhs starting from the times of Guru Nanak till the Partition."
