The Masands of Makhowal came frward to welcome the child Guru. The child guru placed his holy feet in the town of Chak Mata Nanaki Ji Makhowal. The Guru halted at the banks of the River Sirsa and recited five stanzas o Sri anandSahib ji, a holy prayer of bliss composed by Sri Guru Amar Dass,3rd Guru of the Sikhs, and delared henceforth that the town will now be renamed Sri Anandpur Sahib Ji.This event took place in March 1673.Guru Tegh Bahadhur was very pleased and announced that this town would henceforth be called Sri Anandpur.Far and near, Guru Gobind Singh Ji's radiance, wisdom, righteousness, charismatic personality inspired many.

This centre of learning included a Madrusa and Paathshala. Learned scholars came to Anandpur sahib and shared their wisdom.To ecape the fear of Aurangzeb, many sought refuge at the the feet of guru Tegh Bahadhur Ji, According to Sikh History, the Head of the Madrusa was Munshi pir Mohammad Kaji and Head of the paathshala wasunshi Sahib Chand.Both of them in a short period of time taught Guru Gobind Rai Ji Arabic, Pharsi and Sanskrit.
