Shri Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib and Bangla SahibGuru Teg Bahadur Sahib's birthplace was Amritsar.
He was the youngest amongst all his siblings and had four other brothers and a sister. His father was Guru Hargobind Sahib and mother- Mata Nanki Ji.
Although his childhood name was Tyag Mal which literally meant the ‘master of renunciation’ but his bravery and swordsmanship earned him the popular name of Teg Bahadur which meant ‘a champion with the sword’. The battle in question was the battle of Kartarpur and was waged against Painda Khan. It is said that this Sikh martyr had graced the Gurudwara premise for three days with his horse.
The principal reason for Guru Ji to come to RohtakGuru Ji was visited by alarmed Hindus and famous Kashmiri Pundits who feared the Mughal King Aurangzeb who had made it a personal mission to convert all into Islam. The native religious sentiments of the people were trampled upon and they were being forced to take up Islam. An appeal was made to Guru Teg Bahadur and people pleaded with them saying that the honor of Hindu religion was in his hands alone. Guru Ji with a mission to show the way of God to the people made his long and tedious journey from Anandpur.
He came to Kiratpur, then to Ropar, Nanhera and went south to Saifabad, Samana and then proceeded to Kaithal, Jind and Lakhanmajra and then to Rohtak. It is believed that he and his horse halted at Rohtak for three days near a pond. He is also believed to have constructed a well here which has been supposedly filled up.
