Important Sikh history prevails in the Sri Mukstar Sahib City. Three important gurudwaras are found here which are – The Tuti Gandi Gurudwara Sahib, Tibbi Sahib, Gurudwara Rakab Sar and Gurudwara Taran Sahib. One must definitely visit these gurudwaras as they shed light on the history of the Sikhs. Fifteen kilometers away from Mukstar lies a place named Sarai Naga. It is the birthplace of the second out of the ten gurus of the Sikhs named Guru Angad Dev. 

An ancient mosque is also located near the railway station. It is called the Angooran Wali Maseet. The state of Punjab is famous for its gurudwaras. Some of the known ones in and around Muktsar are Gurudwara Guptar Sahib at village Chhatteana, Gurudwaras at Rupana, Gurusar, Faqarsar and Bhundar.

Muktsar stretches over an area of 2615 kilometers. It is bound by Bhatinda and Ferozepur on the east and west sides respectively. Faridkot and Rajasthan enclose it from north and south.

The word Muktsar is comprised of two words ‘Mukti’ which means salvation/liberation and ‘sar’ which means pond/pool. Hence, it means a pond of liberation. The disciples of Guru Gobind Singh Ji were called Muktas. They fought against the Mughal Army in 1705. Thus, it gives the name to the place.
