Gateway to Sikhism

Saka Sirhind
Martyrdom of Young Sahibzades Baba Zorawar Singh & Baba Fateh Singh

The constables, who were escorting the two Sahibzadas, were getting perturbed on hearing such observations from the crowd and were rushing forward.
The Sahibzadas were brought to the spot where a wall was being raised. Both of them were made to stand side by side. The Qazi arrived there soon after and tried to persuade them to accept Islam and not to cut short their lives. Even the executioners tried to prevail upon them but they were both unflinching in their determination and told the executioners, Raise the wall fast and bury the Moghul Raj quickly. Don't delay for a minute. Thereafter both of them started reciting Japji while the wall was going up brick by brick.

The wall went up higher and higher until it reached their chests. The Nawab and Qazi approached them and said to them in an affectionate tone, There is still time for you to save your' lives, just recite the Kalma and the wall will be pulled down immediately.
The Sahibzadas shouted loudly, We shall not give up our faith, death does not frighten us.
Both the Nawab and Qazi were amazed at their steadfast determination. Tears flowed from the eyes of onlookers, as they observed, Blessed be their mother who gave birth to such children.

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.
