Gateway to Sikhism


Gurdwara Lohgarh Sahib - Dina, Faridkot  

Guru Gobind Singh visited the village Dina on his way to Muktsar. Here he was looked after with great devotion by Chaudharis, Lakmir and Shamir, grandsons of Rai Jodh, a devoted disciple of sixth Guru Hargobind. Here Guruji discarded his blue dress of Uch Ka Pir. Till then very few people knew that Uch Ka Pir was none else but the Tenth Master. Nawab of Sirhind Wazir Khan also got the news about the Guru and consequently directed the Chaudhary to arrest the Guru and send him to Sirhind. A man of- steadfast faith Shamir after consulting his brother wrote back, "Just as you hold your 'Pir' in high respect, we too are dedicated to the service of our Guru. Since he loves all, we cannot carry out your orders. and we would beg to be excused." The Gurdwara built at Dina in memory of Guruji is called 'Lohgarh Sahib.'
