ARDHNARI TEMPLE-MANDI

Gurudwara Guru Gobind singh

Mandi figures in the history of Sikh religion. Raja Sidh Sen of Mandi was a devotee of Guru Gobind Singh. The Guru was on a visit in the area and the Raja invited him to stay at Mandi for some time. The Guru accepted the offer but stayed outside the town at a secluded place.

It is said that the place where the Guru stayed was the same where Lomash Rishi had his hermitage. The grey rock on which the Guru meditated is named as 'Kolsara' and the devotees of the Guru have constructed a Gurdwara by the side of the rock on the Mandi-Kulu, road.

The following story is recorded about the Guru's blessing on Mandi. "One fine morning the Guru wanted to, biess the Raja. He ordered the Raja to bring a pitcher and throw it in the running Beas River water, and his devotees were asked to hit the pitcher by a stone. They all failed. The Raja's stone touched the pitcher but it only turned upside down and floated down. At this the Guru told the Raja :

'Jaise Bachee Ye Handi

Vaise Bachay Teri Mandi

Mandi Ko Jo Loote Ga

Asmani Gola Chhoote Ga"

"Your Mandi will remain safe, just as this pitcher could not be harmed. Anybody, if any one will try to loot Mandi, cannons will be fired."
