Baba Bakala

Baba Bakala is a renowned village located about 45 km east of Amritsar. This is the place where Guru Tegh Bahadur revealed himself to a Sikh devotee named Makhan Shah Labana. Main attraction is the magnificent gurdwara of Baba Bakala. During Amavasi, an annual fair is held here which is attended by a large crowd.

Devotees believe that Guru Tegh Bahadur came to know about the death of Guru Har Rai when he was here. It is also believed that Guru Tegh Bahadur got the information of his appointment as the ninth Sikh Guru at Baba Bakala.
