Historical Gurdwaras of Punjab
Guru Hargobind

A Gurdwara and a Mosque
Gurdwara Damdama Sahib, Sri Hargobindpur, Dist. Gurdaspur

Guru Hargobind fought a fierce battle against Mughal forces in December of 1634. They did not want the Sikhs to settle in the town and build a Gurdwara. The Gurus forces were victorious although they were heavily outnumbered. After the battle Guru Hargobind showed his respect and tolerance of other religions by not only finishing the work on the Gurdwara but also ordered the building of a mosque for Muslims.
