Fatehgarh Sahib is a town and a holy journey site of Sikhism in the North West Indian territory of Punjab. It is the central command of Fatehgarh Sahib District, situated around 5 kilometers 3.1 mi north of Sirhind. Fatehgarh Sahib is named after Fateh Singh, the multi year old child of Guru Gobind Singh who was seized and covered alive alongside his multi year old sibling Zora Singh, by the Mughal Army under the requests of officer Wazir Khan amid the progressing Muslim-Sikh war of mid eighteenth century. The town experienced major recorded occasions after the suffering of the children in 1705, with rehashed change of control between the Sikh and Muslim rulers.
The town highlights memorable Gurdwaras, including the underground Bhora Sahib denoting the area where the two young men declined to change over to Islam and courageously acknowledged being bricked alive. In contemporary occasions, the town is the site of instructive instutitions, for example, the SGPC run Guru Granth Sahib University and Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Engineering College. The Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib is the significant milestone in the town.
It denotes the area where two most youthful children of Guru Gobind Singh – multi year old Fateh Singh and multi year old Zorawar Singh – were double-crossed by their cook and hireling Gangu to the Mughal armed force, seized, requested to change over to Islam and when they rejected they were covered alive under the requests of Wazir Khan. Their suffering on 26 December 1705 has been recollected by the Sikhs by naming the site as Fatehgarh after the most youthful kid slaughtered, and by building an extensive Gurdwara in 1843.
