• This Gurudwara is situated on Sirhind-Morinda Road at a distance of about 1.5 Km Southeast of Gurudwara Shri Fatehgarh Sahib in town Fatehgarh Sahib, District Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab. Gurudwara shri Jyoti Saroop Sahib is situated in the district town Fathegarh Sahib. It is situated on the fathegarh Mohali road.
Gurudwara shri jyoti saroop sahib is about a mile to the east
of Gurudwara Fatehgarh Sahib. The road connecting the two Gurudwara Sahibs is diwan todar mal marg, it was on the spot where Gurudwara jyoti saroop Sahib now stands that Mata Gujri ji, Sahibzada zorawar Singh and Sahibzada fateh Singh were cremated. Because of fear of wazir khan played the owners of land around sirhind refused to sell todar mall a piece of land for performing the last rites (cremation) of Guru Sahib's family members. But seeing an opportunity to make a small fortune one farmer agreed to sell todar mall only enough land on which to perform the last rites of Mata ji and the Sahibzadas. Finally an agreement was made to secure the tiny bit of land. Todar mall had to literally 'carpet' the piece of ground in vertically standing gold coins.
At this place, the mortal remains of Mata Gujri Ji (mother of Tenth Sikh Guru, Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji), Sahibzada Zoravar Singh Ji and Sahibzada Fateh Singh Ji (younger sons of Guru Gobind Singh Ji) were cremated. Due to fear of Wazir Khan, the Nawab of Sirhind, no one in the area agreed to give enough piece of land to Diwan Todar Mall to perform last rites. But one Chaudhry named Atta asked Diwan Todar Mall that he could take as much piece of land as he could cover with gold coins. Diwan produced the coins and bought the piece of land and cremated the Holy bodies.
