Keshgarh Sahib is the birthplace of Khalsa (link to Khalsa
Panth). On the occasion of Baisakhi in the year 1699, Guru
Gobind Singh Ji called a very large gathering of Sikhs at
Anandpur Sahib. Here Guru Ji baptized five beloved ones (Panj
Pyaraas) who offered their heads on Guru Ji's call for fight
against injustice and for upholding Dharma.
The first person to answer Guru Ji's call was Daya Ram. Guru
Gobind Singh Ji took him into the tent and the sound of a
sword cutting a body was heard. He came with a sword purpled
with blood. When he asked for the second Sikh, Daram Das stood
up this time. The same episode was repeated with him. At the
third call Mukham Chand, then Himmat Rai and finally Sahib
Chand volunteered and they were also taken in the tent.
All the five Sikhs were brought with new attires and it was
revealed to the gathering that the slaughtering noise was
of the goats. Guru Gobind Singh Ji baptized them with amrit
stirred with his Khanda and gave them name Five beloved ones
with a last name "Singh" Meaning Lion.
