NĀHAR SIṄGH and Sher Siṅgh at the head of 500 Sikhs were appointed by Gurū Gobind Siṅgh (1666-1708) to defend Lohgaṛh Fort during one of the battles of Anandpur. Both of them displayed uncommon initiative and daring against the besieging host. They were rewarded by the Gurū who, according to Kuir Siṅgh, Gurbilās Pātshāhī 10, bestowed on them robes of honour and gold bracelets.
