GurudwaGurudwara Baba Deep Singh Ji Shaheed, Amritsarra Baba Deep Singh Ji Shaheed, Amritsar


GURUDWARA SHRI BABA DEEP SINGH JI SHAHEED is situated in the prikarma of GURUDWARA SHRI HARIMANDIR SAHIB AMRITSAR. BABA DEEP SINGH JI was the leader of the famous ” Shaheedan Di Missel ” among the 12 missels. Apart from getting the GURU GRANTH SAHIB’S saroop written, he also actively participated in all the major battles that took place in the 18th century. In the year 1757 when BABA DEEP SINGH JI got the news that Taimurshah & Jahan Khan have shown disrespect for SHRI DARBAR SAHIB and also started filling the holy sarovar, even though BABA JI was in old age he carried a 18 ser heavy Khanda in his hand to free SHRI DARBAR SAHIB. He took pledge to teach a lesson to the cruel and started his journey for SHRI AMRITSAR SAHIB. On hearing this, Jahan Khan had made thousands of his soldiers ready on the outskirts of the town near Gohalvadh village. There was a fierce battle. BABA JI was still far from the town when during his battle with Jahan Khan, he was beheaded. A Singh standing close to BABA JI when reminded him of his pledge, such a miracle happened which has never happened in the world before. BABA JI held his head in his left hand and with his right hand he swayed the Khanda with such a force that the enemies started running. Like this, fighting the fierce battle, BABA JI reached SHRI AMRITSAR & offered his head at SHRI HARMANDAR SAHIB. In Parkarma, at Shaheed Bunge, this GURUDWARA reminds one of BABA JI & acts as a source of inspiration to keep alive the holiness of such places.
