The Sikh gurus are spiritual leaders of Sikhi, who established this religion over the centuries, beginning in 1469. Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhi, was the first Guru; his successors were also referred to as "Nanak" and used the name "Nanak" while penning down their spiritual verses.
There were 10 Gurus. The holy scriptures of Sikhi, Guru Granth Sahib, is considered 11th Guru, whilst the 12th Guru is the Khalsa (all the Gursikhs of the world make up the eternal Guru) as ordered by 10th Guru Gobind Singh.
