The Story

Guru Gobind Singh Ji – The Siege of Chamkaur

The tenth Master, Guru Gobind Singh Ji – Leaving Chamkaur with valour

During the Battle of Chamkaur, a small number of Sikhs were left in the Fort of Chamkaur with Siri Guru Gobind SIngh Ji. Fighting paused at nightfall while the Mughals regrouped, which gave valuable time to these few remaining Sikhs to plan their strategy.

Those left included Bhai Daya Singh Ji, Bhai Dharam Singh Ji (the two remaining Panj Pyare), Bhai Mann Singh Ji, Bhai Sangat Singh Ji and Bhai Sant Singh Ji. These remaining Sikhs issued Guru Sahib with a Hukam (command) to leave the fort. Guru Sahib had no choice but to obey their command. It was decided that Guru Sahib, Bhai Mann Singh Ji, Bhai Daya Singh Ji and Bhai Dharam Singh Ji would all leave the fort.

Bhai Sangat Singh Ji bore a striking resemblance to Guru Sahib, so, before departing, Guru Sahib dressed Bhai Sangat Singh Ji in his own image. Guru Sahib did not leave quietly. Instead he stood on high ground and clapped his hands three times, saying, ‘Peer-e-Hind-rwad’ (The ‘Peer’ of India is leaving’). The Mighals, who, in the darkness, were unable to see where or who anyone was, ended up killing several of their own, while Siri Guru Gobind Singh Ji and the three Sikhs who accompanied him left. They had previously agreed that, were they to split up, they should meet on the outskirts of Macchivara, twenty-seven kilometres away.

As day broke, the Mughals launched an all-out attack on the mud fort. Despite determined resistance, the Mughal troops finally entered the fort, after hours of bombardment. At the same time, Bhai Sangat Singh Ji, Bhai Sant Singh Ji and the remaining Sikhs charged out on horseback. They engaged the Mughals killing scores of them before attaining martyrdom. The Mughals thought they had killed Guru Sahib, but he had already left Chamkaur.

Meanwhile, Guru Sahib headed on foot to the forest of Macchivara.
