Gateway to Sikhism

Gurdwara Sri Datan Sar Sahib -Muktsar

This gurdwara is associated with the Tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji. During his stay at Muktsar, Guru Sahib was brushing his teeth one morning. A Mughal soldier, sent to kill Guru Sahib, attacked him from behind. Guru Sahib reacted swiftly and hit the soldier on the head with the utensil that he had with him. The Mughal soldier was killed on the spot. A small Manji sahib was constructed at this place and named Datan Sar (datan means toothbrush). Later on, a gurdwara was constructed here. The grave of the Mughal soldier is also present near the gurdwara. The birthdays of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Guru Gobind Singh Ji and shahidi purab of Guru Arjun Dev Ji are celebrated with great fervour here. Besides, the Magh Mela is organized on the 12th and 13th of January to commemorate the sacrifice of the Forty Muktas. Diwali and Baisakhi are also celebrated

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
