Year of Establishment: 1993
punjab technical university
Baba Banda Singh Bahadur Engineering College, was a dream of Panth Ratan Jathedar Gurcharan Singh Tohra. His ideology was that higher technical education should not be only for few selected, but for people from all starta of the society, especially the students from economically weaker and rural areas. Keeping his ideology in mind, the college was started in 1993, and was one of the few engineering colleges present at that time in punjab.
The city is a historically important town north of Patiala, especially for the Sikh faith. Gurudwara Fatehgarh Sahib, marks the site of live entombment of the two younger sons of the tenth Guru of the Sikhs, Sri Guru Gobind Singh on 12 December 1705, by the Governor of Sirhind, Wazir Khan, the place is the today commemorated by Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib, 5 km. north of the Sirhind.
It is named Fatehgarh, meaning Town of Victory, because in 1710 Sikhs under the leadership of Banda Bahadur overran the area and razed the fort (built during Balban's rule) to the ground. Gurudwara Jyoti Sarup Sahib is about 1 Km from Fatehgarh Sahib on Sirhind- Chandigarh road. It was at this place that the mortal remains of Mata Gujri, the mother of Guru Gobind Singh and his two younger sons, Fateh Singh and Zorawar Singh were cremated. Wazir Khan, the then Faujdar of Sirhind refused to allow the cremation of the bodies unless the land for the cremation was purchased by laying gold coins on it. Todar Mal, who was an ardent devotee of Guru Gobind Singh, purchased this place of land by offering gold coins as demanded. And thus etched his name in the annals of Sikh history and earned the salutation of Deewan.
The town has four memorial gates surrounding it, each in the memory of four important persons from the Sikh histiry associated with Sirhind. These are: Deewan Todar Mal, Nawab Sher Muhammed Khan, Baba Banda Singh Bahadur and Baba Moti Ram Mehra. All belonged to different castes / religions, thus depicting the harmony and brotherhood among people of those times.
Sirhind is famous for renowned Mujaddad Alif Saani - Sheikh Ahmad Farooqi Sirhindi, great sufi saint a founder and repairer of Naqshbandi- Majaddaddi school of Sufiism and graceism. His and his sons Hz. Masoom Sahib's and various others mausoleum is there, 200 meters from Gurdwara Fateh Garh.
Banda Singh Bahadur (1670-1716) (Lachhman Das) was born in a Minhas Rajput family. He is considered one of the greatest and most hallowed warriors and martyrs of the Sikhs. He become a Sikh warrior known for his struggle against the Mughal Empire in the early eighteenth century after meeting with Sri Guru Gobind Singh. He became a warrior against the Mughal Empire and Guru Gobind Singh gave him the new name of Banda Singh Bahadur.
Famous for the sack of the Mughal provincial capital, Sirhind, he is revered as one of the most hallowed martyrs of the Khalsa. His confrontation with the Mughal administration in Northern India, though brief, was strong enough to shake its foundations. The agrarian uprising that he led in the Punjab was the foundation on which the Dal Khalsa, the Sikh Misls and Maharaja Ranjit Singh built the edifice which finally culminated with Ranjit Singh capturing Lahore in 1799 and establishing the Sikh Kingdom of the Punjab.
One of the most revolutionary acts of Banda Bahadur, after establishing his authority in Punjab, was the abolition of the zamindari system, and granting proprietary rights to the actual tillers of the land. Life of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur by Ganda Singh provides an authentic record of life and times of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur and is based on contemporary and original records.
Baba Banda Singh Bahadur was the first Singh King who established Sikh rule in a large part of Punjab. He minted coins in the names of Guru Nanak Dev ji and Guru Gobind Singh ji and issued orders under his seal. The name of Mukhlisgarh was changed to Lohgarh (Fort of Steel), and it became the capital of the first Sikh state. Banda Singh Bahadur abolished the zamindari system in Punjab.
