Gurdwara Ranjit Garh

Gurdwara Ranjit Garh is situated at Chamkaur Sahib village in Rupnagar District of Punjab. Guru Gobind Singh is said to have rested at this place for a while, on his way from Kurukshetra to Anandpur Sahib in 1703. Mughal soldiers, under the command of Sayyed Begh and Alif Khan, had attacked the Guru in this site. Though the Mughal troop was large in number, it suffered heavy casualties and retreated after defeat.
