Gurdwara Manji Sahib Alamgir is located in the Alamgir Village In Ludhiana Distt.Shri Guru Govind Singh Ji, after his four sons & mother were martyred by the Mughals, was going from Machhiwara on a bed as " Uchh Da Pir " & reached here on 14 Poh 1761 Bikrami (1704 A.D.). On reaching here , one of the horse traders of the village named Bhai Nigahia Singh, gifted a horse to Guru Sahib. Nabi Khan & Gani Khan were sent back with the bed. Guru Sahib asked an old lady who was picking cow dung whether he could get some water from somewhere to take bath to which the old lady replied that " Pir Ji this is a place of ruins, there is no water here. There is a well far away but there is a big python that lives there, no one goes there. Guru Sahib Ji hit the python with an arrow & gave it " Mukti " ( exemption from further transmigration ) & the python fell into the well. When the Sikhs went to fetch water, the water had gone bad so close to where Guru Sahib was sitting, Guru Sahib hit one more arrow & there was a water spring that came out & all the sikhs had a bath. On seeing this miracle, the old lady fell into Guru Sahib's feet & said " Peer Ji you are a wonderful Peer, I have a request. I have leprosy & i have gone to various places to get the treatment done but it has not been cured, kindly cure my disease & help me to get rid of this disease. Guru Sahib said that whoever takes a bath under this water spring with belief, god will cure all his sadness. Then Guruji sat on the horse given by Bhai Nigahia Singh & went towards Raikot. The old lady had a bath in that water spring & was cured. She went back to the village & told about the whole story. The place where Bhai Nabi Khan & Bhai Gani Khan kept Guru Sahib's bed, today at that place exists a beautiful Gurudwara known as Manji Sahib.The area in which Gurdwara Manji Sahib is constructed is the place where Guru Gobind Singh Ji had stayed to take rest over a three day period. Every year in December, a three day fair is held at Alamgir, attended by thousands from every nook and cranny of the region.
History of Gurdwara Manji Sahib Temple 

Gurudwara Sri Manji Sahib, which is also known by the name of Alamgir Sahib, is located in a village of Ludhiana district by the same name Alamgir. Once, the mother and four sons of Guru Gobind Singh were slaughtered by the Mughals. At this time, Sri Gobind Singh Ji was called uchh da pir. He left the place and reached Alamgir on 14 January, 1761. When he reached here, a follower of his, who was a horse trader of the village named Bhai Nigahia Singh, offered him a horse.
While traversing the area, guruji asked an old lady who was picking cow dunk for some water to take a bath. The old lady addressed the guru as pir ji and told him that there is no water in this place as this is a place of shell. She told guruji that in a place nearby there’s a well from where the guru can get water, but due to presence of a python there, no one goes to that well.
After listening to her, guruji went to that place and hit the python with an arrow to make him mortal so that he can be exempted from further transmigration. The python fell into the well and the water become dirty. Again there was no water in the village.
Then Guru Gobind Ji hit an arrow in the ground and from there came out a water spring. With this water, all the Sikhs of the village could take a bath. After watching this miracle, the old lady fell to the feet of Guru Gobind and became his follower.
At that moment she said Guru Gobind is a wonderful Peer on the earth. She was suffering from leprosy and was avoided by everyone. Gauru Ji asked her to take a bath under the water spring with full faith and belief. She followed the instructions and her disease was cured.
Later, Guru Ji said that whosoever takes a bath in this holy water spring with belief in God, it will relive him or her from all the sadness and suffering. After this incident, Guru Gobind Ji went to Rajkot on his horse, which was given to him by the horse trader.
