(2km from Sirhind on Sirhind-Morinda Road, 53 km from Chandigarh airport, Dist. Fatehgarh Sahib) The Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib marks the spot where the two younger sons of Guru Gobind Singh, Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh, were bricked alive in the fort of Sirhind by order of the tyrant Nawab Wazir Khan on December 28, 1704 as they refused to be converted to Islam. Mata Gujri, their grandmother expired due to the shock and it was a Hindu, Dewan Todar Mal, who cremated the three dead bodies with the help of other devotees of the Guru. At a short distance is the Rauza of Hazrat Mirajabad-ud-din Alaf Sheikh Ahmed Sirhindi and pilgrims visit Sirhind to pay respects to both, Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib and Rauza Sharif.
