History Guru Hargobind ji fought a fierce battle against Mughal forces in December of 1634. They did not want the Sikhs to settle in the town and build a Gurdwara. Guruji's forces were victorious although they were heavily outnumbered. After the battle , Guru Hargobindji showed his respect and tolerance of other religions by not only finishing the work on the Gurdwara but also ordered the building of a mosque for Muslims.
