This Gurdwara commemorates the martyrdom of
two sons of Guru Gobind Singh, entombed alive here in 1704 by Wazir Khan of
Sirhind. It was called Fatehgarh Sahib (fateh means victory) after
the Sikhs, under the leadership of Banda Bahadur in 1710, ran over the area
and razed the fort (built by Ferozeshah Tughlaq) to the ground.
The "Rauza is a mausoleum which commemorates the burial place
of Sheikh Ahmed Farooqi ... who lived during the reigns of Akbar and
Jahangir from 1563 to 1634. The old mosque in the vicinity is extant, so are
several cenotaphs. The tomb of Shah Zaman, [an Afghan king,] indicates that
the Rauza was once considered a propitious burial place of high and mighty.
Some Muslim sects place it next only to the Mecca in reverence. A great Urs
is held here every August."
