GURUDWARA SHRI JYOTI SAROOP SAHIB is situated in the Distt Town FatheGarh Sahib. It is situated on the FatheGarh Mohali road. It is about a mile to the east of GURUDWARA FATEHGARH SAHIB. The road connecting the two GURUDWARA SAHIBS is Diwan Todar Mal Marg, It was on the spot where GURUDWARA JYOTI SAROOP SAHIB now stands that Mata Gujri Ji, Sahibzada Zorawar Singh and Sahibzada Fateh Singh were cremated. Because of fear of Wazir Khan played the owners of land around Sirhind refused to sell Todar Mall a piece of land for performing the last rites (cremation) of GURU SAHIB's family members. But seeing an opportunity to make a small fortune one farmer agreed to sell Todar Mall only enough land on which to perform the last rites of Mata Ji and the Sahibzadas. Finally an agreement was made to secure the tiny bit of land. Todar Mall had to literally 'carpet' the piece of ground in vertically standing gold coins.
