Gurdwara Sri Mardon Sahib is also known as Gurdwara Mardon Sahib Patshahi Nauvin Ate Dasvin as it was visited both by Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji and Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

Guru Tegh Bahadur stayed here for 2 nights. During his stay, Guru Tegh Bahadur held a diwan and provided guidance to the local Sangat.

Guru Tegh Bahadur also gave his blessing to the Raja in this area. The Raja donated a huge protion of land to be used to provide langar and spread the message of Sikhi.

Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji was known as Gobind Rai before he became Guru. As a child, Gobind Rai visited Lakhnaur Sahib with his mother Mata Gujri and other Sikhs accompanying them. They were travelling from Patna to Anandpur Sahib to re-join Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji.

The village of Lakhnaur Sahib was Mata Gujri's ancestral home and so was Guru Gobind Singh's Nanke. Gobind Rai stayed at Lakhnaur Sahib for about 7 months.

Gobind Rai would play both here and at the site of Gurdwara Sri Gendsar Sahib at Bhano Kheri village.

Gurdwara Sri Mardon Sahib owns 120 acres of land; the Gurdwara complex therefore, also includes a vast farmhouse. There are separate sanctums for the two Gurus. The one dedicated to Guru Tegh Bahadur comprises a square domed room, where Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is seated, and the adjoining diwan hall. A separate low domed small room is in the memory of Guru Gobind Singh. Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is seated here also.
