Aurangzeb, with an intention to convert whole of India to Islam, feasted only after removing 50 Kg cotton threads (Janeu) from the bodies of Hindus every day. Troubled by all this, people got anxious and terrified. Seeing all this, the Kashmiri Pandits of those times, who were considered to be of high caste Hindus and who believed in the powers of the Gurus, approached Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji. They pleaded before Guru ji to save their religion. They said, "Now the honor of Hindu religion is in your hands".
On hearing the woes of the Kashmiri Pandits, Guru Ji got instantly ready to wake up the Hindu religion and help them. When Kashmiri Pandits told Guru Tegh Bahadur ji that Aurangzeb has demanded sacrifice of the holiest and purest person, impulsively, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, who at that time was only 9 years old, told his father, "Who else could be holier and more pure than you?" Instantly, Guru Tegh Bahadur ji got ready to help Kashmiri Pandits and attain his own martyrdom.
At that time, Guru ji told Kashmiri Pandits to go and convey his message to Aurangzeb that if he could convert Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji to Islam, we'll also follow the same.
Considering the entire situation and the difficult times, Guru ji felt that before presenting himself before Aurangzeb and enduring his sword (Teg), it was crucial to calm down the wailing people.
From Anandpur, he came down to Kiratpur. After visiting, Ropar, Nanhera etc. he proceeded towards south and then reached Saifabad, from Saifabad to Samana and then he went to Kaithal and Jind. Then from Lakhanmajra he came down to Rohtak. In Rohtak, Guru Tegh Bahadur ji stayed for 3 days. He stayed at a pond side and tied his horse to one of the trees there. Guru Ji also had a well dug there, which has now been covered. On this historical place only, Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, Rohtak, is situated. Just next to the Gurudwara, an ancient temple 'Sheetla Mandir' is also there. The people here, who, at that time were lying Totally hopeless, got the message of Truth from Guru ji and Guru ji told them to pray and meditate on God.
Guru Ji's message said, "Bhai Kaahu Ko Daet Neh, Neh Bhai Maanat Aan" and he told them to move on. There is a place in Rohtak known as "Kalalaa Mohalla". It's said that one old lady from there had fed Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji. This place is now remembered as Gurudwara Maai Ji. From there, Guru ji then marched forward.
This Gurdwara is dedicated to the Ninth Guru, Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Ji. He came here in 1675 while going from Jind to Delhi. He stayed at this place for a few days. A well that existed at the time of his visit is also present but has been filled up now. This Gurdwara is located on Jind Road, near Mataji Gate. It is about one and a half kms from the Railway Station.
