Gurudwara Manji Sahib is a significant pilgrim site for devotees; it is said to be one of the most religious shrines in Punjab. Situated in the village of Alamgir, it is also known as Alamgir Sahib. A prominent highlight of this place is the palanquin (Manji) that carried Guru to his place which is till date preserved in the Bhora Sahib (underground shrine), hence the name Manji Sahib.
In 1761, Guru Gobind Singh reached Alamgir soon after the Mughals executed his mother and siblings. Upon arriving the village, it is reported that the Guru shot an arrow into the ground from which a spring appeared. A lady with leprosy who bathed in that spring was cured. Ever since then, the place is known as "Tissar" or Arrow Lake. It is prophesied that whoever visits the holy spring with faith will be cured of his worries and pain. The guru was also presented with a horse by a devoted follower. Apart from the holiness of the site, many locals and tourists visit this place for Langar a communal meal that caters hundreds of people every day. Gurudwara Manji Sahib is a spirit of service to humanity.
