Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Village Gandhuan


Gurdwara Sahib is dedicated to the memory of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji’s visit in the course of his travels in these parts of Punjab. When Guruji was camping at Bhikhi, he came to know about an old Sikh, Bhai Mugluji of Gandhuan, who had received instruction from Guru Hargobind Ji. Bhai Muglu Ji had shown his prowess in the battle of Mehraj in the year 1634 A.D. Guru Hargobind Ji pleased with his devotion and velour had invited him to ask for a boon. Bhai Muglu Ji wished that before he breathed his last he should be able to have a glimpse of Guruji. Guruji told him that this would not be possible, as he would outlive him, however he might still see the Guru. After many years Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji was in that area. It is said that Guruji suddenly went into meditation and saw Bhai Mugluji. At that time Bhai Muglu Ji lay on his deathbed and desired to see Guruji. Riding through Dhaleo and Kanakwal, Guruji at once reached the house of Mugluji at village Gandhuan. Bhai Mugluji who lay gasping for breath was overwhelmed to see Guruji .He passed away peacefully in Guruji’s presence. Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji then performed the rites of cremation before returning to Bhikhi. The villagers to commemorate this historic event of Muglu Ji’s devotion and Guruji’s response, raised a memorial on the site where Gurdwara Sahib Patshahi Nauvin now stands. The Gurdwara owns 44 acres of land and is administered by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbhandak Committee through a local management committee. The most important annual event is the martyrdom anniversary of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji and Guru Arjan Dev Ji. Accommodation: There are 7 to 8 rooms in the Gurdwara premises, which are used to accommodate pilgrims
