Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Jandsar Sahib Village Kanjla

Guru Tegh Bahadurji came to village Gaga for a night’s stay from Gobindpur, while on his way from Talwandi Sabo to Dhamtan. Guruji tied his horse to a Jand Tree. As his Sikhs went to get grass for their horses, they were chased away by the landowners of the village. On hearing about the incident Guruji quietly left village Gaga. Subsequently when natives of the village came to know about the happening they were very disappointed, and went after Guruji to Gurne Kalan to seek his pardon. After staying for three days in the hope to get pardon, villagers moved with Guruji to Makorar Sahib. Villagers prayed to Guruji and regretted for their indifferent behavior. Ultimately Guruji blessed them. The repentant villagers of Gaga on coming back to their village revived a shrine where Guruji camped. Now a magnificent marble building has been constructed on this site. Shahidi Divas of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji is observed here in a big way. Dushehra, Jor Mela is held with great fervor at this Gurdwara
