Fatehgarh Sahib is a city and the headquarters of Fatehgarh Sahib district, one of the twenty districts in the north west Indian state of Punjab. The city is an historically important settlement north of the city of Patiala and is of special significance to Sikhs.

The word "Fatehgarh", means "Town of Victory", and is so called because in 1710, Sikhs under the leadership of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur conquered the area and destroyed the mughal fort built during Balban's rule.

The town is surrounded by four memorial gates, each in memory of four important figures from Sikh history associated with Sirhind. These are: Diwan Todar Mal, Nawab Sher Muhammed Khan from Malerkotla, Baba Banda Singh Bahadur and Baba Moti Ram Mehra. Each of these individuals belonged to a different caste or religion, showing the harmony and brotherhood among people of those times.

Fatehgarh Sahib is home to several historic Gurdwaras.
