GURUDWARA SHRI KATALGARH SAHIB JI is situated at Chamkaur Sahib in Distt Ropar. The ground around Gurudwara Katal Garh Sahib was the area of battle. It is about 100 yards from the site of GURUDWARA SHRI KACHI GARHI. It saw the bloodiest and unique battle of history. Sahibzada, Ajit Singh, Sahibzada Jujhar Singh showed their exemplary valour and had fatal encounters with the enemy. Along with two Sahibzadas, Three out of Panj Piaras, Bhai Himat Singh, Bhai Mohkam Singh, Bhai Sahib Singh and other Sikhs tasted martyrdom at this site. As per Gurmata of 5 Sikhs stayed in the Kachi Garhi, SHRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI had to leave the fortress on the night of 22-23 December,1704. While going outside Chamkaur, GURU SAHIB passed through a nearby village called Raipur. Here, GURU SAHIB met a devout Bibi Sharan Kaur. GURU SAHIB detailed her about the situation in Chamkaur and entrusted her the duty of cremation of Sahibzadas and other Sikhs. After blessing her, GURU SAHIB moved towards Jand Jungle. Muslim poet Allahayar Khan Jogi has written, about this place:-

Bas ek Hind mein tirth hai yatra ke liyae,
Katai Bap ne betey jahan khuda ke liyae.
