, A Journey through Sikh History

GURDWARA SRI MANJI SAHIB (ALAMGIR SAHIB) is situated in the Village Alamgir In Distt Ludhiana. SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI, after his four sons & mother were martyred by the Mughals, was going from Machhiwara on a bed as " Uchh Da Pir " reached here on 14 Poh 1761 Bikrami (1704 A.D.). On reaching here, one of the horse traders of the village named Bhai Nigahia Singh, gifted a horse to GURU SAHIB. Nabi Khan and Gani Khan were sent back with the bed. GURU SAHIB asked an old lady who was picking cow dung if he could get some water from somewhere to take bath. The old lady replied that " Pir Ji this is a place of ruins, there is no water here. There is a well far away but a big python lives there, no one goes on that side. GURU SAHIB Ji killed the python with an arrow and gave it " Mukti " ( exemption from further transmigration ) and the it fell into the well. When the Sikhs went to fetch water, the water had gone bad. GURU SAHIB hit one another arrow near him and water spring that came out. All the sikhs took a bath. On seeing this miracle, the old lady fell into GURU SAHIB's feet and said Peer Ji you are a wonderful Peer, I have a request. I have leprosy and i have gone to various places to get the treatment done, but it has not been cured, kindly cure my disease and help me to get rid of this. GURU SAHIB said that whoever takes a bath in this water spring with belief, GOD will cure all his sadness. Then GURU SAHIB sat on the horse given by Bhai Nigahia Singh and went towards Raikot. The old lady took a bath in that water spring and she was cured. She went back to the village & told about the whole story. The place where Bhai Nabi Khan & Bhai Gani Khan kept GURU SAHIB's bed, today at that place exists a beautiful Gurudwara known as Manji Sahib.
