Chamkaur Sahib is a Sub Divisional town in the district of Rupnagar in the Indian State of Punjab. It is famous for the Battle of Chamkaur fought between the Mughals and Guru Gobind Singh.

Situated on the banks of the Sirhind Canal, Chamkaur is at a distance of 15 km from Morinda and 16 km from Rupnagar. Guru Gobind Singh and his two elder sons and 40 followers had come to this place from Kotla Nihang Khan with his Mughal pursuers close on his heels. They came in the garden said to be of Raja Bidhi Chand, where now Gurudwara Katlgarh Sahib stands. There are several other Gurudwaras named Tari Sahib, Damdama Sahib, Garhi Sahib that mark the visits and halts of Guru Gobind Singh. There are also some good singers related to Chamkaur Sahib: Durga Rangeela, Parvez Khan Bhagati, Gurbaksh Shonki, Gurbawa, Maninder Mahi and Music Director Lal-Kamal.
