GURUDWARA SRI QILLA MUBARAK SAHIB is situated in the Distt City Batinda. It is situated inside old Batinda Fort, hence the name, Qilla Mubarak Sahib.
SRI GURU GOBIND SINGH JI came to Bathinda via Bhagu. GURU SAHIB met Haaji Ratan, and had a discussion with him.
GURU SAHIB also set him free from the Cycle of Life and Death.
When the people of Bathinda came to know about GURU SAHIB’s visit, They, in large numbers came for GURU SAHIB’s darshan. Further they requested GURU SAHIB to come to the Qilla (Fort).
Accepting their request GURU SAHIB accompanied them to the Qilla. GURU SAHIB came here and asked people that if they have any problems. The people advised GURU SAHIB that there was a spirit (deo) who destroys their houses and disturbs them.
Kindly set us free from from this monster.
GURU SAHIB summoned the spirit and asked him that why was he disturbing people. He bowed in front of GURU SAHIB and told him that he was hungry from a long time. Kindly do some thing for him, he will leave the fort for ever.
GURU SAHIB sat for some time and found that there was bull common of ten villages. People were also disturbed from that bull. GURU SAHIB send some Singhs to get that bullock.
When Singhs reached village Nat Banger they asked people about that bull. People laughingly told that bull was sitting in water. Bhai Mailagar Singh went to him and asked ” Chalo Bhai GURU SAHIB ne Bulayaa hai”. The bull came out and Singhs started following him towards Bathinda. The bull reached the Fort in front of GURU SAHIB.
GURU SAHIB asked Bhai Mailagar Singh to jhatka the bull’s head in one attempt of sword. Bhai Sahib did as exactly as requested. And it was offered to the deo and his hunger was fullfilled. GURU SAHIB sent the monster to Sirhind and told him that his services will be needed there.
