History

Before His (ninth Sikh Guru) body could be quartered and exposed to public view, it was stolen under the cover of darkness by one of his disciples, Lakhi Shah Vanjara, who then burnt his house to cremate the Guru's body. This place is marked by another gurdwara, Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib.

The severed head ("Sis" in Hindi or Punjabi) of Guru Tegh Bahadur was brought to Anandpur Sahib by Bhai Jaita, another disciple of the Guru. before It was cremated he held on Ambala city for a night and there is a another Gurudwara as well by the name of Shri Sis ganj Gurdwara, Gobind Rai, who would later become Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth and last Guru of the Sikhs.

भाई मतिदास जी (Punjabi: ਭਾਈ ਮਤੀ ਦਾਸ, English: Bhai Mati Das Ji) (24 November 1675) is one of the great martyrs in Sikh history. He along with his younger brother Bhai Sati Das and Bhai Dyal Das, all disciples of the ninth Sikh Guru, Guru Teg Bahadur, were executed along with Guruji at the Kotwali (police-station) near the Sunehri Masjid in the Chandni Chowk, under the express orders of emperor Aurangzeb.
