History Likhansar derive from two words Likhan i.e writing and Sar i.e sarover or holy pond i.e The Pond Of Writing. Under Guru Gobond Singhji’s supervision, his scholars and calligraphers Bhai Mani Singh and Baba Dip Singh compiled the Dasam Granth, and made four copies of the Guru Granth Sahibji. There used to be a pool of water here in the days of Gur? Gobind Singh, who sitting here sometimes would have reed-pens for the writers made and then throw them into the pool. It was here that Bhai Mani Singh ji who used a kalam/s to pen the Guru Granth Sahib dictated by Guru Gobind Singhji. Later the Guru Sahibji threw all the ink and kalams (a reed carved into a pen) into the Gurdwara's Sarovar and gave a blessing saying, 'whomsoever shall write the thirty five words of the Gurmukhi here will be blessed with a sharp mind'. Once, Bhai Dalla, the local chief converted a disciple, entreated him to explain why he ordered thousands of pens to be cut and thrown away. To quote the S?kh? Poth? the Gur? said : "Thousands of Sikhs will hereafter study the holy texts in this place and then pens will come into use. This is our Kashi (seat of learning); those who study here will cast off their ignorance and rise to be authors, poets and commentators. " There is a sand pit in the gurdwara on which mothers make their young children put the script.
