Bahir Jakkh is a village located near
in Patiala District
, on the left bank of the Holy Saraswati River. This village is held a sacred place because Guru Tegh Bahadur
, the ninth Sikh guru, had stayed here briefly. The guru
had lived here for some days with Malla, a Sikh devotee who was a carpenter.
Bahir Jakkh houses an ancient gurdwara believed to have been constructed by the Maharaja of Patiala. Dedicated to Guru Tegh Bahadur, this gurdwara attracts a large number of devotees.
