In year 1704, The Hill Raja's with the Mughal Army surrounded Anandpur Sahib. They wanted to finish **Guru Gobind Singh Ji maharaj** and his Singh's beacuse they did not accept the oppression that was happening in the rule of 'Aurangzeb'. They were fighting against the oppression and opposing 'Aurangzeb'. The Hill Raja's were not able to do anything then they decided to break the doors of the 'Lohgarh Fort' so that they can enter the fort and capture the Singh's. The Hill Rajas brought a drunk elephant and covered him with big metal plates and sent him towards the Lohgarh fort doors. Then Bhai Bachittar Singh with Guru Sahib's grace charged towards the elephant alone and peirced the" Nagni Barcha" into the forehead of the elephant result of which the elephant ran towards the Hill Raja's army and killed their soldiers.
Now the Hill Raja's and the Mughal army sent their representatives to *Guru Gobind Singh Ji* The Hill Raja's sent a Pandit with a flour dough cow and swear an oath of not attacking Guru Sahib if they leave the fort and 'Aurangzeb' sent a signed Quran and sweared the same oath. The Singhs then asked Guru Sahib to trust them and leave the fort but Guru Sahib from the start knew about their fake oaths.
Guru Sahib and their family and all the Singhs leave the fort at midnight and breaking their oaths the Hill Raja's and Mughal Army attacked Guru Sahib from behind. Sahibzada Ajit Singh was leading the command of battle of Sarsa. One side Sahibzada Ajit Singh was Fighting with army and on the other side Guru Gobind Singh ji is saying to the Singhs that it is the time of amritvela we need to start **Asa Ki Vaar** kirtan. Guru Sahib completed the Kirtan and started to cross Sarsa River with their family and Singhs the flow of the river was at its peak beacuse of the rain.
Many Singh's had drowned in the river and only 43 Singh's were left with Guru Sahib along with Sahibzada Ajit Singh and Sahibzada Jujhar Singh Ji. *Mata Gujri Ji* and *Chotte Sahibzade* had lost Guru Sahib and were left alone. The wives of Guru Sahib went into different direction. The Family was Split into three parts.
