Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Gurusar Sahib, Village Rupana



Gurdwara Gurusar Sahib, Rupana, is associated with he Tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji. He came here after winning the battle of Muktsar in 28 Baisakh/ 25th April, 1706. He rested here for some time. While Guru Ji was resting, a wild crow kept flying about cawing. Guru Ji shot the crow with an arrow. On being asked by his followers, Guru Ji explained that the wild crow was in fact an old headman of the village who had been cursed and turned into a crow because of his evil deeds. Guru Ji said that he had come to this place to emancipate the crow. The gurdwara stands in the center of a low laying area, now vast perennail pond owing to water logging. To reach there one has to go through a crossway built in 1970. Ground floor of the Gurdwara building is closed because of dampness. The birthdays of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Guru Gobind Singh Ji are celebrated with great fervour. A big fair is organized every year during 1st week of March
