Gurdwara Sri Baggsar Sahib

Location - Jassi Bagwali, Bathinda, Punjab, India


Associated with - Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji


Sikh Artifacts - unknown


Sarovar - Yes


Sarai - unknown


Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji visited Jassi Bagwali in 1706, while on his way from Muktsar City to Talwandi Sabo through Lakhi Jungle.

A small pond existed at this place. When Guru Ji crossed the pond riding on his horse, the horse and the dark brown dress of Guru Ji turned white. When his followers asked what had happened, Guru Ji explained that as the pond washed the colour from himself, it would wash the sins of a person taking a bath here.

The pond was been converted into a sarovar. Guru Ji stayed here under a tree for 10 Days. The people of the village offered Gur (Jaggery) to Guru Ji.

Since White is known as Bagga in Punjabi, hence the name of the Gurdwara.
