The last battlefield of the tenth Sikh Guru, shri Guru Gobind Singh sahib, lies in the district’s main city. A huge battle, knowns as Battle of Muktsar, took place between the Mughals and the Sikhs in 1705 where a Gurudwara, Gurudwara Tibbi Sahib, now marks the site.

The district has many historical Gurudwaras including, Darbar Sahib, Shaheedi Gurudwara, and Tibbi Sahib in the main city and many more in the different villages of the district.

A huge fair, known as “Mela Maghi”, is celebrated in January every year at Sri Muktsar Sahib city in the memory of the forty martyrs (liberated ones).
