Gurdwara Sri Somasar Sahib is situated near the Tibba village in the Ludhiana district.
Following the siege of Anandpur Sahib, Guru Gobind Singh, after evading the mughal and rajput attackers at Chamkaur, came to Machhiwara.
It was then that two Pathan brothers, Ghani Khan and Nabi Khan, even at the prospect of facing certain death, helped Guru Gobind Singh to escape from the pursuing mughal army.
At Machhiwara Guru Gobind Singh donned the blue robes of a Sufi pretending to be the Pir of Uch.
Guru Gobind Singh loosened his hair and, accompanied by the Pathan brothers and three Sikhs, was carried in a palanquin with a Sikh waving a chanwar over the Guru's head as they passed safely through enemy lines.
Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji arrived nearby after passing through a number of villages.
Along with Guru Gobind Singh was Bhai Daya Singh, Bhai Dharam Singh, Bhai Maan Singh, Bhai Ghani Khan and Bhai Nabi Khan.
When Guru Gobind Singh asked a nearby villager, who was grazing cattle, for water. The villager started shouting.
It is said that Guru Gobind Singh came here, at the site of Gurdwara Sri Somasar Sahib, and touched the ground with the tip of his arrow, a sprinkle of water started coming out.
After stopping here to drink water and rest, Guru Gobind Singh and his companions continued to Alamgir and beyond.
