History Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji and 400 Sikhs left Anandpur Sahib on the cold rainy night of December 5th 1705 after a prolonged siege by the Mughal army. The Guruji had been offered safe passage if he left the town on a oath on the Koran by emperor Aurangzeb. In the early hours of the morning at the swollen river Sarsa the Guruji and his Sikhs were attacked by the Mughal army under the command of Wazir Khan, breaking their oath of safe conduct. In the ensuing confusion, cold and darkness, most of the Sikhs perished. Some braved the current and a few including Guru Gobind Singhji were able to cross the river in the heat of the battle. During the confusion the Guruji was separated from his family. The Guruji, his two eldest sons and 40 Sikhs were able to cross the river and escape. This Gurdwara was built on the spot where the battle occurred and the Guruji's family was separated.
