About Shri Fatehgarh Sahib

Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib is situated in Fatehgarh Sahib on Sirhind-Morinda Road. The town of Morinda is 15 kms from this place, whereas town of Sirhind is 2 kms. After the heroic death of two elder sons of Guru Gobind Singh, in the battle of Chamkaur, his two younger sons, namely, Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh were done to death, by being bricked alive in the fort of Sirhind by the order of the tyrant Nawab Wazir Khan. That is why it was named Fatehgarh Sahib.

Now thousands of pilgrims from all over the world visit Sirhind to pay respects to Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib. At short distance is the Rauza of Hazrat Mirajabad-ud-din Alaf Sheikh Ahmed Sirhindi. To the south-east of the city is a Caravan Serai of the Mughal period known as Aam-Khas Bagh. It has now been converted into a tourist complex where suitable accommodation is available at reasonable rates.
