This Gurdwara is situated in town Fatehgarh Sahib on Sirhind-Morinda Road at a distance of 5 Km from town Sirhind and 15 Km from town Morinda, in Gurdwara Shri Fatehgarh Sahib.
This is a basement where the Historic Wall exists in which two younger sons of Tenth Sikh Guru, Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji were bricked alive on orders of Wazir Khan, the Nawab of Sirhind.
Zorawar Singh and Fateh Singh were brought before Wazir Khan, who had just returned from the battle of Chamkaur. Wazir Khan tried to lure them to embrace Islam with promises of riches and honours, but they spurned the offer. He threatened them with death as an alternative to their accepting Islam, but they remained firm.
A death sentence was eventually awarded. Nawab Sher Muhammad Khan of Malerkotla protested that it would be improper to harm the innocent children. Wazir Khan, however, ordered them to be bricked up alive in a wall, if they still refused conversion. They were kept in the Cold Tower in that severe winter for another two days. Under the orders of Wazir Khan, the Sahibzadas began to be walled in with bricks while standing on the ground. However, as the masonry reached above chest height, the wall collapsed. The next day the Sahibzadas were once again offered the choice of conversion or death.
They chose the latter and fearlessly faced the executioner's sword. The cruelty of their murder and their fearlessness of death which they preferred to giving up their faith finds a touching narration in "Ganj-e-Shaheedan" an urdu poem by a muslim poet, Allahyar Khan Jogi, who used to recite it from Sikh platforms during the second and third decades of the twentieth century.
The historic wall where the young sons of Guru Gobind Singh were bricked-up alive does not remain but the actual location has been preserved in this Gurdwara, which is underneath Gurdwara Sri Fatehgarh Sahib. Gurdwara Sri Bhora Sahib Fatehgarh also has the kirpan hilts of the young Sahibzadey displayed in small cases.
