DAL SINGAR, lit. ornament or embellishment (singar) of the army (dal), was the name of one of Guru Gobind Singh`s warhorses.According to Bhai Santokh Singh, Sri Gur Pratap Suraj Granth, one Kapura Jatt, “master of several villages in the jungle,” (the reference probably is to Chaudhari Kapura Bairar of Kot Kapura, founder of the Faridkot family), had purchased this horse for Rs 1,100 and sent it to Guru Gobind Singh as a present. The Guru assigned it to his personal stables and named it Dal Singar.
