Maghi

The day of Maghi is observed in remembrance of the heroic fight of the Chali Mukte, or the Forty Liberated Ones. 

They sacrificed their own lives defending an attack by the imperial army marching in pursuit of Guru Gobind Singh.  The action took place near a pool of water, Khidrane di Dhab, on 29 December 1705.  Sikhs celebrate the Maghi with an end to end recital of the holy Guru Granth Sahib and religious rituals in all the Sikh Gurudwaras (temples).
