Muktsar Fair

Festival | Cultural Festival

Muktsar Sair is one of the largest Sikh fairs held in Punjab. The fair is held on the Makar Sankranti day.

The fair is organised in the Muktsar district of Punjab, to pay tribute to Guru Gobind Singh and his followers.

The fair commemorates the battle fought by Guru Gobind Singh in 1705-06, against the imperial forces of Mughal rule. The Guru was defeated in the battle, but managed to escape. However, his followers were not as fortunate and were cut into pieces. Guru disposed off his followers’ bodies with the usual rites, declaring that they have attained salvation.
