GURDWARA MANJI SAHIB ALAMGIR LUDHIANA
Gurdwara Manji Sahib Alamgir, situated at Alamgir Village about 11 km from Ludhiana, is one of the most revered pilgrim destinations of the state of Punjab. Alamgir is the very village where Guru Gobind Singh had alighted in the search of water at the end of an excursion full of hardships. As he didn’t find any drinking water even here, he shot an arrow in the ground and miraculously created the present day ‘Tirsar Tank’. Manji Sahib Gurdwara is an imposing six storied edifice erected in the holy memory of Guru Gobind Singh who had stayed here for some days. He had arrived here in a palanquin in the garb of Pir of Uchch in order to conceal himself from Mughal enemies.
As the Guru had arrived in a palanquin, i.e. Manji, this Gurdwara is named Manji Sahib Gurdwara.
