This historic Gurudwara located at Fatehgarh Sahib, Sirhind in the Indian state of Punjab is steeped in tragic history. It was built to commemorate the martyrdom of two younger Sahibzadas (sons) Baba Fateh Singh 9 and Baba Zorawar Singh 7, of Guru Gobind Singh ji- the 10th and last Guru of Sikhs. The two tender hearts were bricked alive in 1704 by the orders of then Mughal Governor of Sirhind, Wazir Khan for refusing to embrace Islam.The wall where the execution took place has been preserved inside the main Gurudwara and is known as Gurudwara Bhora Sahib.- Wikipedia.........
Hubby and I had a deeply felt spiritual experience when we visited the place last week . Sitting with Sangat ( other visitors) in the Langar hall, to eat community lunch was memorable.
