Rauza Sharif of Sirhind
Rauza Sharif of Sirhind in Fatehgarh Sahib has been constructed at Sirhind to commemorate the valiant youngsters who gave up their lives when tempted to give up their religion for Islam. Wazir Khan the Fauzdar of Islam bricked them under the instructions of Aurangzeb. A Gurudwara was raised in that place and is known as the Rauza Sharif of Sirhind in Fatehgarh Sahib.
It is a splendid Gurudwara and is the main site for the Tourist attraction at Punjab. Maharaja Yadavendra Singh constructed the chief foyer of the Gurudwara Rauza Sharif of Sirhind in Fatehgarh Sahib. The historical well has been preserved; it was a place where the sons of Guru Govind Singh were bricked. In the main complex of the Rauza Sharif of Sirhind in Fatehgarh Sahib there are two other Gurudwaras namely the Burj Mata Gujri and Gurudwara Sahid Ganj.
The mother of the two innocent children was kept in a cool place also known as the Thanda Burj. This place is supposed to remain cool even during the summer season. She collapsed after hearing the news f her son’s death and it is said that at this place afterward a Gurdwara was constructed in her memory which is known as the Gurdwara Mata Gurji.
The big hall inside the Rauza Sharif of Sirhind in Fatehgarh Sahib is there to make us remember the great man Todar Mall who procured land by paying gold coins for the cremation of the said martyrs.
A tank has been constructed here and Jor Mela is held every year at this place to commemorate the incidents relate to Rauza Sharif of Sirhind in Fatehgarh Sahib.
December is the time for the visit to this place and since Jor Mela is a splendid pageant, one can enjoy the show with ease and comfort.
