Gurdwara Bhai Jaita is situated in Anandpur Sahib in the Ropar District and is in memory of Bhai Jaita.
At Anandpur Sahib, Guru Tegh Bahadur listened to an aggrieved group of Kashmiri brahmins who were being terrorized under the religious bigotry of mughal emperor Aurangzeb.
Guru Gobind Singh, a child of nine, asked his father to make the supreme sacrifice to upkeep righteousness.
Guru Tegh Bahadur was beheaded on 11th November 1675 at Chandni Chowk, Delhi. Guru Tegh Bahadur's head was returned to Anandpur Sahib by Bhai Jaita.
Guru Gobind Singh declared, 'Rangrete Guru Ke Bete' (Rangretas are the Sons of the Guru) referring to Bhai Jaita and his journey from Delhi.
Guru Gobind Singh cremated the head of Guru Tegh Bahadur at Anandpur Sahib, the place is now marked as Gurdwara Sri Sis Ganj Sahib.
After the cremation Guru Gobind Singh gave a speech at what is now Gurdwara Sri Akal Bunga. Gobind Rai became Guru Gobind Singh at the age of nine at Anandpur Sahib after the martyrdom of his father.
