SHRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI
used to stay at place where GURUDWARA SHRI TIBBI SAHIB is situated now. When GURU SAHIB asked Bhai Kapura for his fort at kotkapura to fight against the Mughal Army, he refused to support and give his fort. GURU SAHIB came here to jaito. Here GURU SAHIB got his tent pitched on Tibbi (A Small Hil Top). There GURU SAHIB made singhs to practice for the Arrow shootings. In the evening GURU SAHIB came to this place where GURUDWARA SHRI GANGSAR SAHIB is situated and took rest. There was water shortage in the Malwa area at that time. There was water resourses near (GURUDWARA) Tibbi Sahib, but there was little pond near here. GURU SAHIB used to go to GANGSAR SAHIB for any type of water requirement. GURU SAHIB showed a Brahmin flowing Ganga here. GURU SAHIB also made an Urn appear from the pond which had fallen into the river Ganga. From that ownwards this place was known as SHRI GANGSAR SAHIB.
