Nawab Kapur Singh (1697 - 1753)
When Mughal rulers offered a jagir (estate) to
the Sikhs, the Sarbat Khalsa decided to hand it over to Sardar Kapoor Singh
and honour him with the title of Nawab (Duke). The Sardar, in return, showed
extreme humility and consented to accept this only if it was consecrated
by the touch of the feet of Panj Pyaras.
