A Tour of Mandi Bahauddin (Three Gurdwaras and A Temple)

On July 27, 2019, I had had an opportunity to visit Mandi Bahauddin, on the invitation of my dear friend and brother Irfan Ahmed. I explored the area around Mandi Bahauddin many times in the past, but never fully explored the city itself. It was a family visit and I was just looking forward to meeting our relatives and perhaps a little discovery of one or two old buildings. But the visit turned out to be very interesting. Irfan being aware of my fondness for old buildings, having some historical significance, took me on a quick tour of the city. The central part of the town, the bazaar area is well planned and has broad streets, though like every other city and town of Pakistan overcrowded with encroachments, especially the carts selling mostly vegetables/fruits or clothes. 
Our first destination was an old Pathshala (school). It is located in a by-lane off the main Sadar Bazar road at  32°35’7.35″N; 73°29’30.46″E. Even today it is being used as a government primary school. The compound has many rooms on two sides of a courtyard in two floors, and the only structure which is of any particular interest is that of a pavilion. I am not sure what the pavilion was used for. Perhaps a statue existed here in the past.

Here we reached in front of an old two storey building. The ground floor has some shops facing the road. The entrance is a small door leading to a room and adjoining corridor, that opens into a big hall. The building was a gurdwara before 1947 and now it is being used as a warehouse and is totally neglected and due to negligence is falling apart. I forgot to ask someone, but probably is a property of the Auqaf department (or Evacuee Trust Property Board). Now the problem is that these properties have been rented out or given on long term leases. Hence the occupants have no interest in repairing or maintaining them. Therefore, tragically many beautiful buildings across the country are deteriorating. 
I was told by a person, that it was a much bigger complex and another large building was attached to it, which was perhaps a guest house and langar hall etc. related to the gurdwara. The date of construction is not known, but we can safely guess that it would have been constructed in 1920s or 1930s. It is located at 32°35’3.90″N; 73°29’24.77″E. (In the map given below, I shall refer to this gurdwara as Gurdwara 1.)

Just at a little distance from the main Sadar bazaar and not far from the above-mentioned gurdwara, another old building exists. That too was a gurdwara. Now a family lives inside this building and we could not see it from inside. It too is a fairly large building with an impressive facade. This gurdwara is located at 32°35’0.41″N; 73°29’22.27″E. (In the map given below, I shall refer to this gurdwara as Gurdwara 2.) Kashmir House is painted above the door in Urdu, because refugees from Kashmir settled in after the independence.

The above mentioned two gurdwaras are located in a busy bazaar, there is another gurdwara which is located on the outskirts of the city,  about a kilometer and half in the east of the city centre at  32°35’16.05″N;  73°30’26.80″E. It must have been in open green fields and would have presented a good view but now it is surrounded by closely built houses, without much planning. It seems that these houses have been constructed on the land of the gurdwara. This gurdwara was built in 1944, as an inscription on the building shows. Much of the other structures have been demolished or incorporated into the neighbouring houses, however, the main tower-like building still exists and is in reasonably good shape, considering the time passed since its construction.

It seems that people used this building for religious purpose for sometime. But while painting Islamic phrases on the walls, they took care not to paint or disfigure the inscriptions in written in Gurmukhi.(27.07.2019.)

— ਬਾਬਾ ਪਰ ਧਰ ਪਜਾ ਆਸਣ ਬਾਧਣ ਸਆ (Holy shabds)

1944 is inscribed on this corner, which gives its year of construction. So the devotees had to leave this place soon after its completion.  (27.07.2019.)

These buildings may not have much historical importance, nevertheless, these are a link to the pre-partition society of Mandi Bahauddin, when different religious communities lived in this city. It was a small town before independence, but the non-Muslims formed an overwhelming majority. As the table given below shows:

Mandi Bahauddin City Population: According to the Census of 1941

Mandi Bahauddin is a new city and was probably settled during the development of canal colonies. In 1941 it had a population of just 12,572. Now the population according to the census of 2017 is 198,609. So this city has witnessed an exponential growth in the last 8 decades. These buildings should be preserved because their value as a part of our heritage and this city’s link to the pre-independence era.

History of Mandi Bahauddin

In 1506 C.E. Chief Bahauddin, Sufi Sahib, established a settlement namely Pindi Bahauddin in the north-eastern corner of the region known as “Gondal Bar”, after his immigration from Pindi Shah Jahanian to this area. The settlement soon became a center of intense commercial activity, hence named afterwards by the merchants as “Mandi Bahauddin”, the Market of Bahauddin. The Urdu word “Mandi” implies “marketplace”. The proto-city was later on fortified with 9 main doorways to guard against foreign invasions. The wall intact today was completed in 1946.
However, the
recorded history of Mandi Bahauddin goes back to the era before Christ, connecting the region with the historic figure of Alexander the Great. Some 8 km northwest of the modern-day Mandi Bahauddin town, near the plain of village Khiwa on the southern bank of Jhelum River (Greek Hydaspes), the battle Battle of the Hydaspes River was fought between Raja Porus (Sanskrit Paurava) and Alexander. This historic battle of Hydaspes River, which Indian sources refer to as the “Battle of Jhelum”, took place in 326 BCE. The kingdom of Raja Porus was situated in the northern Punjab of modern Pakistan. This battle proved the last major fight of Alexander’s career, for the Macedonians, after being put up a fierce resistance by Porus’ soldiery and having heard of a massive 4,000 elephant force mustered by eastern kingdoms, refused to march further east i.e. Ganges Plains.
After the battle, Alexander laid down the foundations of three cities in the modern-day Mandi Bahauddin district: “Nicaea” (Victory), near modern-day Mong, “Bucephalus”, after his horse’s name at the site of modern-day Phalia, and “Helena”, after the famous Greek legend of Helen of Troy. Further south in what is today Wazirabad, the cutlery industry has its unique honour to have sharpened and prepared the swords of this great invader.

In 997 CE, Sultan Mahmud Ghaznavi, took over the Ghaznavid dynasty empire established by his father, Sultan Sebuktegin, In 1005 he conquered the Shahis in Kabul in 1005, and followed it by the conquests of Punjab region. The Delhi Sultanate and later Mughal Empire ruled the region. The Punjab region became predominantly Muslim due to missionary Sufi saints whose dargahs dot the landscape of Punjab region.

Another historic battle of Mandi Bahauddin was fought in 1739–40 near the modern traffic site of “Satt Sira”. Although
no concrete historical record is available for the Battle of Satt Sira, this battle has come down in oral traditions as a legendary tale of valor and bravery. Reportedly, the Alliance of the 3-Sohawa villages (Sohawa Dillo Ana, Sohawa Bolani, Sohawa Jamlani) put up fierce resistance to one of the main contingents of Persian Army led by Nader Shah. Nader Shah was not present in person with the contingent, which had stationed near Satt Sira. The Sohawa Alliance, under the generalship of legendary figure Dillo khan gondal, managed to defeat and divert the pressure of Nader Shah’s formidable force, which soon afterwards sacked Delhi. On this redemption, some anonymous local Marasi poet of the day spoke up:
The combat between Dillo and the victor of Delhi (took place),

The one from the lineage of Lion (Dillo) came out victorious.

Mandi Bahauddin came under British rule in the nineteenth century. The city is only 34 km southwest of Chillianwala, the site of the famous Battle of Chillianwala/The Second Sikh War, fought between the British East India Company and the Khalsa Sikh Army. The British commander in the battle was General Sir Hugh Gough, who was later on replaced with General Charles James Napier. The city fell to the British in 1849 as the Sikhs were defeated in this decisive combat and the whole Sikh kingdom, consisting of modern Punjab and Khyber Pakhtoonkha provinces, was annexed to the British East India Company same year.

The population grew considerably in the early 20th century near the old village site [Chak No. 51], where Sikh, Hindu and Muslim businessmen and landowners came to settle. The town was named Mandi Bahauddin after the establishment of a grain market in the area (Mandi means “market” in Urdu). During the British rule, in 1916, the Pindi Bahauddin Railway station was built to connect the town with other major cities via Lala Musa Railway Junction. It was a time when the British
re building railway tracks across the Subcontinent and introducing modern and essential public-use equipments in their best interest. The Railway System was introduced and laid down to defend their Empire from the North. Partly due to the reason quoted above and partly due to its geographical position, it was called North-Western Railway (NWR).
Chak Bandi was founded by Sir Malcum Heley and approximately 51 Chaks were settled and notified. In these 51 Chaks, the land was awarded to the people who were loyal to the British Empire and had worked for the British interests. Chak 51 became the centre of this newly established town. The map of this Chak was made by John Alam. A famous grain market was set up in the center of the Chak. Soon afterwards, Chak No. 51 was called Mandi-Bahauddin. In 1920 this name was notified. In 1924 Pindi-Bahauddin Railway station was also notified the above mentioned name. In 1937 when Mandi-Bahauddin was town, it was given the status of a town committee. In 1941, the town was given the status of a Municipal Committee. In the master plan for the reconstruction of the town, in 1923, all of the streets and roads were laid straight and wide. In 1946, nine gates and a fortification wall surrounding the whole town, belated due to riots, was completed.

The predominantly Muslim population supported Muslim League and Pakistan Movement. After the independence of Pakistan in 1947, the minority Hindus and Sikhs migrated to India while the Muslims refugees from India settled down in the Mandi Bahauddin District. In 1960, the city was given the status of Sub-Division in District Gujrat.

In 1963, the Rasul Barrage and Rasul-Qadirabad Link Canal project under the Indus Basin Irrigation Project started. The project was managed by WAPDA, and a large colony for government employees and foreign contractors was constructed 2 kilometers north of Mandi Bahauddin city. This project was completed
n 1968 by Engineer Riazur Rahman Shariff as the Project Director. This project brought Mandi Bahauddin into limelight and helped the city grow commercially.
In 1993, Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo, then Chief Minister of Punjab, announced and notified Mandi Bahauddin city as the District H.Q. of the new district of Mandi Bahauddin.

The Tehsil headquarters towns of Phalia and Malikwal are 22.5 and 28.5 kilometers from Mandi Bahauddin, respectively
