Maghi

January 13

Maghi is the annual festival and one of the seasonal gathering of the Sikhs. It is celebrated at Muktsar in the memory of forty Sikh martyrs, who once had deserted the tenth and last human Guru of Sikhism, Guru Gobind Singh at Anandpur Sahib, but later rejoined the Guru and died while fighting the Mughal Empire army led by Wazir Khan in 1705. Sikhs make a pilgrimage to the site of this Sikh-Mughal war, and take a dip in the sacred water tanks of Muktsar.
