About Badshahi Bag Gurudwara

The Badshahi Bagh Gurudwara is located in the city of Ambala and commemorates the visit of the tenth and last human Guru of Sikhism, Guru Gobind Singh. He modeled the religion into its current form by forming the Khalsa fraternity and completed the holy book of Guru Granth Sahib. During 1670, he visited the place where the Gurudwara stands today. He had gone to meet his maternal grandparents in Lakhnaur. It is said that during one of his excursions in Lakhnaur, the then eight-year-old Guru went on a hunting trip on a horse carrying his white hawk along. He happened to stop by a large garden outside the city of Ambala. The garden belonged to the custodian of Muslim shrines of the city, Pir Amir Din. Pir had a black hawk, but upon setting his gaze over Guru’s white one, he had an urge to own it and promptly challenged the Guru to a fight of the two hawks. Guru understood his intentions and suggested that he would make two sparrows fight the black hawk instead. This made the Pir laugh, and he thought about how weak sparrows could compete with his hawk. However, the black hawk was defeated to death by Guruji's sparrows. This event made the Pir realize his folly, and he later built a platform in honor of the Guru. This pristine Gurudwara made in white color was destroyed in 1857 by the British but was rebuilt in 1931 by Sant Gurmukh Singh. Every year the festival of Baisakhi is celebrated at the Gurudwara with great zeal.
