SHAHEED BUNGA BABA DEEP SINGH: The place is in the memory of Baba Deep Singh’s (A Great Sikh Warrior) who sacrificed for the dignity of Sri Harmandir Sahib while fighting with Mughals in 1762.

This place stands as a memory to the bunga of Shaheed missal to which Baba Deep Singh belongs. In 1762 Harmandir Sahib was invaded by Mughal invader Ahmed Shah Abdali. As the news of sacrilege of Harmandir Sahib reached Baba Deep Singh, at once moved towards Amritsar, by the time it reached Tarn Taran city the strength rose to nearly 5000. Baba Deep Singh made a prayer that he reaches Harmandir Sahib while fighting the enemy. While nearly 6 miles from Amritsar there was a pitched battle between Baba Deep Singh and Shah Jamaan (the Mughal commander). Shah Jamaan fell down where as the head of Baba Deep Singh was nearly chopped of. One of the Sikh soldiers reminded Baba Deep Singh of the prayer he had made. Baba Deep Singh supported his head with left hand and continued moving towards Harmandir Sahib. This mere scene made the Mughal army run back foot. Baba Deep Singh reached Harmandir Sahib. This Gurdwara in memory of Baba Deep Singh, reminds one of the prayer made by a Sikh devotee and fulfilled.
