Younger Sahibzadas is a term used to refer to the two of the younger sons of Guru Gobind Singh.

  • Sahibzada Zorawar Singh (1696-1705). ‘Zorawar’ means "Brave" was the older of the "younger sahibzadas" and 8 years when he attained martyrdom.
  • Sahibzada Fateh Singh (1699-1705) was the youngest of [[Guru Gobind Singh|Guru Gobind Singh's] four sons. ‘Fateh’ means "victory".
  • Supreme sacrifice - There is no parallel to the martyrdom of such young children in the annals of human history. Sahibzada Fateh Singh was less than six years old (born 1699) and Sahibzada Zorawar Singh was just over eight (born in 1696) when they willingly laid down their lives in December 1705 rather than renounce their own faith.
  • Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib marks the sad site where the younger sahibzadas were bricked alive by the Mughal leaders in 1705
