Gurdwara Sat Sang Sahib - The remaining two historical Gurdwaras are related to the martyrdom of Guru Tegh Bahadur, and the carrying of his head to Kiratpur and Chakk Nanaki by Bhai Jaita in November 1675. Gurdwara Sat Sang Sahib is on the Hospital Road in Mohalla Kukharan (lit. potters) on the site where Bhai Jaita traveling incognito, with the Guru's severed head placed in a basket and carried on his head, had first halted on his arrival from Traori and enquired about any Sikh's house. One Mehar Dhumian directed him to a house where he spent the night and where now stands Gurdwara Sis Ganj in Mohalla Kainth Majri close to the shrine of Hazrat Tawakkal Shah Naqshbandi.
