Gurdwara Charan Kanwal at Machiwara

Gurdwara Charan Kanwal is situated in Machiwara, 35 km from Ludhiana on Charan Kamal Road , near Bus Stand. It is connected by road to Ludhiana-Chandigarh highway at Samrala (42 km) and to Ropar (46 km). It is said that Gurdwara Charan Kanwal at Machhiwara is the place where Guru Gobind Singh was founded by his three companions Daram Singh, Daya Singh and Man Singh, who were separated at the time of his escape to the forest from the enemies ,while fighting a guerrilla war against a massive Mughal force. They saw that Guru Gobind Singh is sleeping on some bushes on the ground in the garden with a stone as his pillow. Guru Gobind Singh drank water from a well which appears in the foreground, that which is used to water the garden. This holy shrine has a beautiful building which was built in memory of the historical event .

The annual festival of this shrine is held in December ( 9th & 10th of Poh) , the days of which Guruji stay at Machiwara. There is also another shrine in Machiwara called as Gurdwara Chubara Sahib. This shrine is situated in the place where he and his 3 companions were given shelter by one Masand Gulaba Singh in his house to escape from the enemies .It is in this spot he sang "Mitra Piyare Nu". There is another Gurudwara in Machhiwara called Gurdwara Ghani Khan Nabi Khan. It is the house of two Muslim Pathan brothers Ghani Khan and Nabi Khan who help the guru and his 3 companions from the Mughal army, by putting them the blue robes of a Muslim saint and carried them in a palanquin through the enemy groups. These muslim brothers are so believable to the enemies and they were allowed to go.
