Gurudwara Baba Deep Singh Ji, Amritsar Overview

Located in Amritsar outside the Chatiwind gate is Gurudwara Baba Shaheed Deep Singh Ji, honouring the valour and martyrdom of Baba Deep Singh Ji, which is why it is also known as the Shahidan Sahib. He was specially renowned for his contribution during 1757 when he fought the Afghani troops led by Ahmed Shah Abdali, from attacking, invading, and blowing up the Golden Temple. He fought bravely alongside thousands of others but was fatally wounded during the fight.

Even though he was badly wounded in the neck, he had vowed to take his last breath at Harmandir Sahib and so he fought with all his might and made it all the way back to Amritsar where he finally passed away. Sardar Jassa Singh of Ramgarhia constructed this memorial to commemorate Baba Deep Singh Ji’s sacrifice. It was later in the 1920s when Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee developed this memorial site into the Gurudwara that we see today.
