MATA SUNDARI GURUDWARA NEAR ROUSE AVENUE IN NEW DELHI

  • After the death of Aurangzeb, when the war of succession broke out between Prince Moazzam and Prince Azam, the former sought the help of Gobind Singh who sent a token force to help his friend at the Battle of Jajua, near Agra, in June 1707.
  • But the guru camped nearby and when the need arose for reinforcements, he rushed in to Muazzam’s aid.
  • Azam was fatally wounded and his elder brother ascended the throne as Shah Alam, Bahadur Shah I
  • After the death of the guru and successive rulers came and went, Mata Sundari and Mata Sahib Devi were not unduly disturbed, except when the heroic Sikh warrior Banda Singh Bahadur was executed in 1716 and then in June 1725 when they had to leave Delhi and live in Mathura for two years.
  • They continued to guide the panth (community) from Mata Sundari haveli, sending hukumnamas (encyclicals) to followers as far away as Kabul in the north and Dhaka in the east, rallying the Sikhs and prevailing upon them not to accept those who were trying to set up an 11th guru.
