not sure about any battle, but the sarovar around harmandir sahib was a lake in a dense forest area i believe. 

iv heard that Guru Nanak Dev ji visited this place and that buddha did too

I think Guru Amar Das ji chose the location while Guru Ram Das ji made the lake into a sarovar and started a city which later became Amritsar

During the time of Guru Ram Das ji  bibi Rajni visted the sarovar with her sick husband and saw crows flying into it and coming out as doves, Her husband also went into the sarovar and came out free from his disease. The part of the sarovar that this happened in is where dukh bhanjani beri is.    I think Bibi Rajni visited when it was still a forest and not a city yet ...

other than that   i dont know more ...

we can never know for sure . But I am betting it was always some holy, blessed place.

All we know is it was a beautiful small lake surrounded by a beautiful forest . The lake was further extended to the size it is today around harmandar sahib .

I think that might be the war that took between ram and his sons! I think ram did not know that they were his sons and his sons did not know that ram was their father because sita was sent back to the forest and that's where she gave birth.  Ramayan was written in amritsar by valmiki theres a mandir there called ram tirath.  I think luv, kush and sita narrated their story to valmiki in the forest. from what I remember hanuman also visited this place and there is a ancient mandir there where hanuman visited. All this basically happened in the area that today is amritsar. 

Ajeet will probably know more ...

    • The planet breaths a sigh of relief, lol. 
    • It's true. And something most Sikh parents ignore because most Sikh parents themselves think it's cool and modernable to dress our children like that. I remember my niece on her first birthday was dressed up like a barbie by her parents. Thats where it starts.  If I ever had a daughter I wouldn't let her be semi nude like this. And be available for men.  Sikh parents of girls act like pimp nowadays 
    • Honestly, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your reply has really brought peace to my mind. Yes you're right, professional support is out there but I think this journey is difficult but will build me as an individual. I've always tried to live to make others around me happy which kind of left me unknown of my own identity. I really want to build myself, understand my needs and wants.... And mostly importantly recognise my weaknesses and faults so I can be a better person. Confidence and having high regards of your own well being attractive I guess. It sets a bar and people know not to cross it which keeps relationships healthy and fair. With waheguru jis mehar I really want to improve myself so that when my marriage is fixed I can move forward. You're right, I know I want quick results but on the other hand 8 months of no communication feels like a life time.... However like you said it is better to wait and have problems resolved.  I definitely need to research some techniques and see which suit me best.... It's my sister's wedding in a few weeks which is great happiness for us as a family but a constant reminder for me. It's really hard but the more I'm trying to be happy for her and plan things for her the more peace I feel.  Once again thank u sooo much, your response has really settled my mind.
    • I'm not trying to be rude but most of you guys on here talking about "women these days" sound like incels. I don't know why some people are so obsessed with what women are doing, go out there be the alpha male and any girl will like you. It's very simple Singhs need to man up. Most Singhs want a pretty and feminine girl so similarly girls like confident manly men, alot of Singhs are not up to scratch its simple as that.    There is alot of incel like <banned word filter activated> shaming going on - you can not hope to know what someone is like from a Facebook post or photo, hell even the people you see up close like those in school, you don't know the full story.   What makes me laugh is how quickly people think they can sum up the complexities of someone else's life. On top of that you guys aren't even happy when a girl moves on and criticisize when they do finally settle down as covering up or whatever - it's called growing up and developing as a person, quite a normal thing.   Maybe if we the kaum wasn't full up of people who have nothing better to do than discuss other people's supposed love lives on the internet and actually understood normal human behaviour of making mistakes, being immature and developing, we actually wouldn't have people looking elsewhere.   Finally, there never was this "ideal respectable woman", not in any era. Hanky panky has been going on since the beginning of time, read charitrpakhiyan.
