The stories about the historical little town of Fatehgarh Sahib are super fascinating, to say the least. The two posts I wrote about about this place last month got great response from everyone – the first one Fatehgarh Sahib – Celebrating Valour and Sacrifice (Part 1) was about the legendary Diwan Todar Mal and his place in Sikh history, the second post – Celebrating Valour and Sacrifice (Part 2) was about the grand Gurudwara Fatehgarh Sahib, which holds in its bosom the holy room where the young saahibzaadas of Guru Gobind Singh were bricked alive.
But before meeting this gruesome fate, the young sahibzaadas Baba Zorawar Singh ji (aged 9 years) and Baba Fateh Singh ji (aged 7 years) and their grandmother Mata Gujri had to endure bone-chilling cruelties at the hands of Wazir Khan, the then Governor or Fauzdar of Sirhind.

i visited anandpur Sahib and totally loved the feeling of valour and bravery there….hopefully can visit this palce too!!
I've no words to describe the sacrifices they made.
Sikhism really makes me proud.
What beautiful heritage… I have been wanting to do a deep trip into Punjab. So much to visit and explore…thanks for bringing these nuggets…
You should also read about baba moti Ram mehra . He has a great place in Sikh history bcz Baba Moti Ram Mehra, along with his family, was sentenced to death by being squeezed in a Kohlu (oil press). So pls provide full knowledge
No one is like a Sikhism
Could you please tell me about Hansla river that had flown behind the Thanda Burj because due to this river that place was so cool. I want to know about that river in detail.
