Gurdwara Data Bandi Chod, Fort Gwalior signifies the release of 52 Rajput Rulers from the prison of Emperor Jahangir by Shri Guru Hargobind Sahib (Sixth Great Master of Sikhs) in 17th century. To know the History of this Gurdwara, see the link,"History of Gurdwara Data Bandi Chhod, Fort Gwalior" given at top right hand side of this blog.
Sri Guru Hargobind Ji wore two swords Miri (signifiied royalty) and Piri (signified spirituality). He got the Lohgarh Fort constructed at Amritsar (Symbol of Military power) and also constructed Akal Takhat Sahib (Symbol of Royal power).
To make the environment pollution free, Kaar Sewa (Selfless Service), an organisation looking after administration of the Gurdwara has planted a number of decorative, flowering and fruit bearing trees along roads at the Fort and Gwalior city. For further information on Kaar Sewa Khadur Sahib, see the article, "Kaar Sewa Khadur Sahib" at link www.khadur-sahib.blogspot.com.
Kaar Sewa is also looking after the administration of Gurdwara Paua Sahib(Ghatampur) and Gudwara Guru Nanak Dev Ji (Phool bagh, Gwalior). To get information on all the Gurdwaras maintained by Kaar Sewa Khadur Sahib see the article "Historical Gurdwaras constructed/Renovated/Maintained/Supervised by Kaar Sewa Khadur Sahib" at link www.khadur-sahib.blogspot.com. To provide quality education to the children living in remote areas, Dera Kaar Sewa has started Shri Guru Hargobind Public School Booti Kuian (Distt. Bhind), Bandi Chhod Academy Gharsondi (Gwalior) and Bandi Chhod Academy Mohna (Gwalior). In addition, Kaar Sewa had also started Guru Nanak Senior Secondary School Dabra (Gwalior) and Sri Guru Hargobind Public School Sheopur. After making these schools financially self sufficient, both the schools have been handed over to the local Management Commitee.
