Fatehgarh Sahib

40 kms from Chandigarh

The Great Tirth (Centre of pilgrimage) of the Sikhs, it is about 50 kms. to the north of Patiala on Patiala Rupnagar Road via Morinda.
The main Gurdwara commemorates the martyrdom of the two tender Sahibzada(sons), Zorawar Singh(9 years) and Fateh Singh (7 years) of the tenth Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, who refused to apostasise from truth and religion under threat from their captor, the Suba of Sirhind and were suffocated to death in the walls which were raised around them. Alongside is the Burj of Mata Gujri-the grand-mother of these martyrs who could not survive the shock of their martyrdom. Nearby is the Gurudwara Jyto Swarup where the cremation ceremonies of the three were performed under duress. A great fair (Jor Mela) is held here for 2 days in the month of December.
