Singh Shaheedan

The Gurudwara Singh Shaheedan is located in Sohana, very near to Mohali city in Punjab state, India. From Chandigarh, its distance is around 23 Kms. The famous Gurudwara was constructed in the memory of martyr (Shaheed) Jathedar Baba Hanuman Singh Ji, the 7th Jathedar of Budhadal and the Jathadar of Akal Takth Sahib and other 500 Sikhs who prevail martyrdom while fighting against British forces during Anglo-Sikh Wars at the age of 90 years. Wooden shoes of martyrs have been preserved inside this Gurudwara. A Sarovar also presents in its compound. People from distant as well as neighbouring place come to visit this Gurudwara to get the blessings of Gurus.


On 18th November 1755, Baba Hanuman Singh Ji was born at Narangpur Wala. Sardar Garga Singh Bath and Mata Harnam Kaur were their parents. After the death of its powerful leader, Maharaja Ranjit Singh and top administrators General Lal Singh and Gulab Singh Dogra, the Sikh State was in devastating condition. In this worse situation, Maharani Jind Kaur sent a letter to Baba Ji through General Sham Singh Attariwala at Akal Takth Sahib, Amritsar for the security of the state.

Baba Ji instantly responded to this worsening situation and on December 1845, he sent the fighters to the battle field of Muddiki. Around 10,000 Anglo Soldiers died in this brutal war. At last, the enemy ran way and they won the fight. But, a spy Karam Singh also known by the name Karma Ali told the opponent to attack with gun fire, as Nihangs were lacking in such support. The enemy attacked with powerful gun fire and as a result around 15,000 Sikh soldiers were martyred. All the dead bodies were cremated at Gurudwara Dukhniwaran Sahib.

Baba ji along with 500 warriors who were fighting in the war headed for Gharam and were badly injured with gun fire. They all reached this place passing through Rajpura and ultimately, Baba ji embraced martyrdom. The management and the followers were highly obliged to the great personality with remarkable force who accepted the request to help them.

This Gurudwara was raised in their memory under the direction and supervision of Sant Baba Harbans Singh Ji Karseva Bangla Sahib Delhi. The Gurudwara Sahib Shaheedan has been constructed at the cremation place in remembrance of Baba Ji.
