Gurdwara Sri Lohgarh Sahib

Gurdwara Sri Lohgarh Sahib gurdwara_sri_lohgarh_sahib2 In 1705, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji visited the village of Dina on his way to Muktsar Sahib. Guru Gobind Singh was looked after by Chaudharis, Lakmir and Shamir, grandsons of Rai Jodh, a devoted Sikh of Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji, with great respect. Guru Gobind Singh discarded his blue dress of Uch Da Pir here. Guru Gobind Singh stayed here at Dina for 3 months and 13 days. When Wazir Khan, the barbaric child killer and Nawab of Sirhind, heard that Guru Gobind Singh was here, he directed the Chaudhary to arrest the Guru and send him to Sirhind. A man of steadfast faith Shamir, after consulting his brother, wrote back, “Just as you hold your ‘Pir’ in high respect, we too are dedicated to the service of our Guru. Since he loves all, we cannot carry out your orders.” The Gurdwara built at Dina in memory of Guru Gobind Singh is called ‘Lohgarh Sahib’. Bhai Desu, a Tarkhan carpenter, made an excellent bed using his carpentry skills. The bed was so good that Bhai Desu kept it for Guru Gobind Singh. When Guru Gobind Singh arrived, Lakmir and Shamir asked Guru Sahib to stay at their house but Guru Gobind Singh decided to stay at Bhai Desu’s house. The local Sangat started coming for darshan of Guru Gobind Singh who would also hold regular diwans. It was from here that Guru Gobind Singh asked Bhai Daya Singh Ji and Bhai Dharam Singh Ji to deliver the Zafarnama, written in exquisite Farsi (Persian), to Aurangzeb. gurdwara_sri_lohgarh_sahib_history gurdwara_sri_lohgarh_sahib_history2
