Shaheedi Jor Mela

Shaheedi Jor Mela is an annual fair celebrated at Gurdwara Pariwar Vichhora, on the bank of Sarsa River, in Punjab. It is held in the fourth week of December and lasts for three days.

The fair is celebrated to pay homage to Guru Gobind Singh's two younger sons, who were cremated at Fatehgarh Sahib. Guru Gobind Singh was the 10th and last Sikh Guru, whose sons were entombed alive for not converting to Islam. A large number of devotees throng during the fair.
