There are 2 Historic Sikh Gurdwaras at this site relating to Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji and Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.

Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji

The first Gurdwara relates to the visit of Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji. When Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji was at village Bhai Rupa (about 9 km's away), Bhai Rai Jodh invited Guru Ji to visit Kangar.

Kangar is located only a few kilometers from here. This place marks the site of Guru Hargobind's camp.

Bhai Rai Jodh brought Guru Hargobind back to his home which was a small fort in the village. This was the location that Bhai Bidhi Chand brought Guru Hargobind's second horse (which the mughals originally stole).

Kangar was the site where Bhai Bidhi Chand informed Guru Hargobind that the mughals were going to try and kill them all. Guru Hargobind started making plans for a defense which resulted in the 1631 Battle of Gurusar.

1631 Battle of Gurusar

The Battle of Gurusar was the third battle fought by Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji near Mehraj with Lala Beg and Qamar Beg in 1631. Despite overwhelming odds, the mughals were completely crushed in this battle.

Forward 1631 Battle Of Gurusar - Guru Hargobind's horses were snatched by Mughals and recovered by Gursikh, Bhai Bidhi Chand.

The mughals had a 35,000 strong army while Guru Hargobind's side only numbered 4,000. The battle was fought during winter season and Guru Ji had pre-planned everything. Because the mughals were not fully acquainted to the conditions of the area they had not planned well for the battle.

Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji

The second Gurdwara relates to the visit of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji after Guru Sahib wrote the Zafarnama at Dina.
