is a city of gardens, palaces and magnificient buildings.
The fort with a Burj of Baba Ala Singh is associated
with the 9th guru, Guru Teg Bahadur. It is stated that
when the guru was on his way to Delhi to offer the supreme
sacrifice, he stayed at the site of the present gurudwara,
then situated in Lehal Village. At that time, the village
was in the grip of an epidemic, which was claiming a
heavy toll of life. The Guru took out some water from
a small pond, where the present gurudwara is situated
and sprinkled it towards the village with his blessings.
It is said that the affected villagers got rid of the
epidemic. Sine then, the water of the tank is regarded
as ameliorative of diseases. The spacious Baradari garden
is another attraction of the city.
