Akal Takhat (ਅਕਾਲ ਤਖ਼ਤ) means the Throne of the Immortal and is the highest political institution of the Sikhs. "Akal" means "The Timeless One" - another term for God. "Takhat" means "throne" in Persian. The Akal Takhat is an impressive building that sits directly in front of the causeway leading to the Golden Temple in Amritsar. The Akal Takhat was founded by Guru Hargobind in 1606 and was established as the place from which the spiritual and temporal concerns of the Sikh community could be acted upon.

The Jathedar (Chief) of the Akal Takhat is the highest spokesperson of the Sikh Panth and is meant to be a spiritual leader without control or influence from any outside, politically motivated sources.

It is the most supreme of all the Takhats. There are four other takhats established by the panth (community) during the last century:

Originally known as Akal Bunga, the building directly opposite the Harmandir Sahib was founded by sixth Sikh Guru, Guru Hargobind, as a symbol of political sovereignty and where spiritual and temporal concerns of the Sikh people could be addressed. Along with Baba Buddha and Bhai Gurdas, the sixth Sikh Guru built a 9 foot high concrete slab. When Guru Hargobind revealed the platform in 1606, he put on two swords: one indicated his spiritual authority (piri) and the other, his temporal authority (miri).
