Gurdwara Shri Manji Sahib - Ludhiana - Punjab.

Guru Shri Gobind Singh, after his four sons and mother were martyred by the Mughals, was going from Machhiwara on a bed as ” Uchh Da Pir ” and 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 Gobind Singh.

Nabi Khan and Gani Khan were sent back with the bed. Shri Guru Sahib asked an old lady who was picking cow dung whether he could get some water from somewhere to take bath to which the old lady replied that ” Pir Ji this is a place of ruins, there is no water here”.

Gurdwara Shri Manji Sahib

There is a well far away but there is a big python that lives there, no one goes there. Shri Guru Gobind Singh hit the python with an arrow and gave it ” Mukti ” ( exemption from further transmigration ) and the python fell into the well.

When the Sikhs went to fetch water, the water had gone bad so close to where Shri Guru was sitting, Shri Guru hit one more arrow and there was a water spring that came out and all the Sikhs had a bath.

On seeing this miracle, the old lady fell into Shri Guru’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 disease”. Shri Guru Sahib said that whoever takes a bath under this water spring with belief, God will cure all his sadness.

Then Shri Guru sat on the horse given by Bhai Nigahia Singh and went towards Raikot. The old lady had a bath in that water spring and was cured.

She went back to The village and told about the whole story. The place where Bhai Nabi Khan and Bhai Gani Khan kept Guru Sahib’s bed, today at that place exists a beautiful Gurudwara known as Manji Sahib.
