Nawanshahr (Shahid Bhagat Singh Nagar)

In the Indian state of Punjab, Nawanshahr is a municipal council in the Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar district. It was originally a town, but in 1995 it was elevated to the status of a district. It is also the birthplace of Bhagat Singh, India’s most famous independence fighter.
The “Chalie Muktey,” a group of forty Sikh soldiers led by Guru Ji, battled the Mughals to death here. The city was renamed Muktsar in their honour after the battle, and the government recently renamed it Sri Muktsar Sahib owing to its religious and historical significance.
