Gurdwara Ghani Khan Nabi Khan, Machhiwara, Dist. Ludhiana

Living in the town of Machhiwara were two Muslim Pathan brothers Ghani Khan and Nabi Khan who knew Guru Gobind Singh. It better times they had sold horses and received kindness from the Guru. Even at the prospect of facing certain death, the brothers agreed to help Guru Gobind Singh escape the surrounding area which was full of the Mughal army looking for the Guru. They had Guru Gobind Singh put on the blue robes of a Muslim saint and accompanied by his three Sikhs survivors of the battle of Chamkaur, they carried the Guru in a palanquin through the enemy lines. They were only stopped once by Muslim soldiers, but Ghani Khan and Nabi Khan were so convincing that the party was allowed to pass through enemy lines with their 'Muslim Saint' in disguise. This gurdwara honors the home of these two brave brothers.

Gurdwara Katana Sahib, Dist. Ludhiana

Guru Gobind Singh spent a night here on his way to Alamgir with Muslim brothers Ghani Khan and Nabi Khan. During colonial rule the British had to divert their irrigation canal around the Gurdwara because of its religious sanctity.

Gurdwara Alamgir, Dist. Ludhiana

After traveling through the enemy lines dressed as a Muslim saint with Muslim brothers Ghani Khan and Nabi Khan as his guides Guru Gobind Singh reached Alamgir village. Here Guru Gobind Singh was presented with a horse by a devoted Sikh he met. Guru Gobind Singh discarded his disguise and blessed Ghani Khan and Nabi Khan for their help before bidding them a fond farewell.

Gurdwara Phalahi Sahib, Dist. Ludhiana

Guru Gobind Singh stopped here after leaving Muslim brothers Ghani Khan and Nabi Khan at Alamgir a few miles away. The Guru tied his horse with a small Phalahi tree which still stands today.

Gurdwara Raikot, Dist. Ludhiana

After leaving Muslim brothers Ghani Khan and Nabi Khan Guru Gobind Singh was received warmly by a wealthy landlord and devotee Rai Kalha. Here at Raikot Guru Gobind Singh stayed in hiding for a number of days. Guru Gobind Singh requested Rai Khala to send a messenger to Sirhind to find out about the whereabouts of his family which had been separated from him during their crossing of the river Sarsa. Rai Kalha reported the tragic story of the execution and martyrdom of the Gurus two younger sons and how his mother Mata Gujri had also passed away. Guru Gobind Singh exclaimed that his sons were the gift of Almighty God and had gone back to Him.

Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib, Sirhind, Dist. Patiala

The two youngest sons of Guru Gobind Singh, Baba Zorawar Singh and Baba Fateh Singh were martyred at this spot on December 27, 1704. They along with the Gurus mother Mata Gujri had been captured by the governor of Sirhind Wazir Khan. Even though Islamic law does not allow for the killing of children, Wazir Khan gave the two young brothers a choice of either converting to Islam or being put to death. Both sons were bricked up in a wall and had their heads cut off but they steadfastly refused to convert to Islam. Guru Gobind Singhs mother Mata Gujri who had also been captured died from the shock of the murder of her beloved grandchildren. Five years later Banda Singh Bahadur and the Sikh army would take their revenge by destroying the town of Sirhind and killing Wazir Khan in battle.
