Gurudwara Sher Shikar , Machkund
This Gurdwara is situated in Machkund, in Dhaulpur, Rajasthan. This Gurdwara is related with sixth Guru, Shri Guru Hargobind.
While moving towards Gwalior, Emperor Jahangir with Guru jee arrived at Machkund on 4th march, 1612 and stayed in Bhamtipura village. The head of that area told Jahangir about a deadly loin and requested him to save them from that lion.
Jahangir had plans to kill Guru Hargobind through that lion. When the team is in the forest searching for this lion, the lion charges to attack and destroy Jahangir. Jahangir and his soldiers were ready and start firing guns and arrows but in vein. The lion was very bold and kept quickly advancing towards the party. Seeing this, Jahangir was very scared and start screaming for help. It is said that at this point, Guru Hargobind jee came and stood between Jahangir and lion and says to lion "Ae kale yaman pehlan toon war kar lae kidre tere man di iccha baaki na reh jaye". The lion attacked Guru ji with his full force. Guru ji put shield in front of lion and with his sword hit the lion on its back and killed him it with one motion. Jahangir now realised that the Guru was not only powerful spirituality but also physically. Jahangir quickly retreated from the scene bidding a hasty "thanks" to the Guru.
