Gurdwara Charan Kanwal (Banga)

Recommended Posts

Gurdwara Charan Kanwal in banga Nawanshahr is a lesser known historical gurdwara. This gurdwara sahib marks the site where Guru Hargobind sahib ji came and rested for a month after a battle where they killed painde khan. Guru sahib rested here for about a month along with his soldiers as well as Guru Har Rai sahib ji, Guru Tegh Bahadur ji and baba Gurditta ji as children. This place was blessed with the visit of 3 gurus. The Gurdwara was built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh.    This Gurdwara sahib is like a 5 min drive from my nanke. Not many people seem to know about it.

This Gurdwara is where my Parents and Grandparents used to go as they originally came from Banga.

While the land for the Gurdwara was given by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the building itself was built in the 1920's I think.

is it   my nanke pind is right next to banga,   The information board reads that it was built under maharaja ranjit singh i think.   the appearance of the gurdwara is very similar to some historical gurdware in pakistan. parts of it probably been altered over the years though

Its a beautiful gurdwara so if anyone happens to be driving through nawanshahr (lol) the next time you visit Punjab then do visit.  not that far on the main road that runs through banga is bhagat singhs museum, and from the museum theres a small road that leads you to bhagat singhs ancestral pind and house.    

other than that theres isn't much else there lol

    • came across this by accident recently. the altercations sound similar albeit in different circumstances. basically my point is whitey wudnt dare do this wiv blacky cuz theyre scared of em. but they like to think they take on browny i.e. singhs n win. they c em as weak n a soft touch. sadly its true in most cases. too many singhs r no longer men anymore. tht includes the metrosexual flex who r well built like a tank but weak in mind like a woman. its dwn to us to make whitey n blacky fear us as well. we need to be ready to fight bk n defend ourselves. thts how we need to be if we want to ensure or increase our survival in the west or abroad. there was a time wen no one used to think abt messin wiv a singh. we also need to be firm/serious wen needed which is most of the time in reality. not smiley n giggly males. its unmanly n irritating to c. dnt think the family wudve imagined this wud happen to em. n thts the point. we cnt keep thinkin im always gna be safe, its never gna happen to me etc. thts a mistake waitin to happen to any of us. the wife n baby cud easily have been caught n harmed had the singh not taken it upon himself to say something. theres a possibility he realised his limits n knew then n there he was fighting a lost cause. we have to learn from this n make sure our own limits r at a threshold tht will help save us if were ever in the same situation. its been mentioned numerous times before but it needs to be repeated until more folk wake up n listen n make the change themselves.
    • the sikh pa family statement made by his wife who wudve been the only eyewitness to it all makes no mention of any kirpan bein used anywhere during the confrontation. but one uk news outlet is quotin this white supremacist lookin thug as sayin he was stabbed in the shoulder which is wat led to the chokehold. as if tht shud help his case. fact is he saw a brown man n lost control. apparently thai law is only 4-15 yrs for trespass n manslaughter.
    • No mention of his kirpan,  does anyone know if he had it with him?
    • if the article in the news is read you will realise the attacker was a white Norwegian by the surname of Bullman , the Singh fought with this guy who was a trained martial artist whilst he told his wife to pick up the two year old and run. Bullman was intent on attacking her too.
    • This poster is pigg headed.  No where does it say the attacker was white.  But this poor excuse for an human being brings race into this topic because hes a piece of <banned word filter activated>.  No one was blaming this pigg headed poster.  Yet this clown writes "Betty white" in a post and nothing else and on a topic of a Sikh man dying.  What the hell does betty white have to do with this topic.  Go get lost.  Racist punks like you are not welcome here.
