History Kanech village, 20 kilometres southeast of Ludhiana, is 2.5 kilometres from the Sahnewal railway station and only one kilometer from where Guru Gobind Singh Marg meets the G.T.Road. Leaving the place now marked by Gurdwara Katana Sahib, Guru Gobind Singhji came to Kanech. For the last three days he had been travelling in a palanquin borne by his devotees. He now desired to relieve them and to continue his travel on horse back. Still disguised as a Muslim divine, he asked Chaudhari phatta of Kanech to lend him a horse. Phatta offered the Guru only a weak mare. So the Guruji asked him to spare his best horse. "But, my best horse has been taken away by my son-in-law," lied Phatta. The Guruji dismissed him with a smile and resumed his journey in the palanquin. It is said that when Phatta returned to his house, he found his most valued horse lying dead of a snake-bite. The shrine established later in honour of the Guruji is now called Gurdwara Manji Sahib Patsahi Dasvin.
