Saunti, an old Village 2 km northeast of Amioh (30"36`N, 76"14`E), in Fatehgarh Sahib district, claims a historical shrine called Gurdwara Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib. It is situated in the open fields over a kilometre to the east of the Village and is approached through a cart track going to Jalalpur Village. It marks the site where, during a hunting excursion, a dog belonging to Guru Hargobind killed a wild boar and itself died of wounds sustained during the fight with the beast.
The Gurdwara is a Manji Sahib of old construction, 7metre square with a verandah in front. On a platform inside are displayed some swords and chakras. The Guru Granth Sahib is seated in the verandah and is attended by a farmer who cultivates the adjoining land. Being in an out of the way and isolated place, the shrine has hardly any visitors during the year.
During the time of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji, two Sikh sewadars had a heated argument. One Sikh called the other a boar. The other Sikh responded with by calling the first a dog.
Guru Nanak heard them and said they would become the animals they mentioned in their next lives. The Sikhs apologised. Guru Nanak said as the 6th Guru he would liberate them.
Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji travelled from Kangra, Maloke, Chhapar, Rurka, Rara, Gidri and arrived at Ghudani in 1631. After staying for 45 days, Guru Hargobind travelled to Dhamot, Chakohi, Ikolaha, Salana and then Saunti.
When Guru Hargobind arrived in Saunti, Guru Ji had a dog. A wild boar lived in the jungle nearby and the two animals fought. Both sustained injuries and were fatally injured. Guru Hargobind used his bow and arrows to put both animals out of their misery and liberate them.
Gurdwara Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Saunti is situated in the lovely open fields over a kilometre to the east of Saunti village. The Gurdwara garden is kept in very good condition.
There is a Thara underneath the Gurdwara marking the site where Guru Hargobind stayed. Another small building in a nearby field marks the site where the dog (smaller mound) and boar (larger mound) were liberated.
