Gurdwara Bhatha Sahib

Gurdwara Bhatha Sahib is a historical shrine at Kotla Nihang in Rupnagar District. The Gurdwara lies on the left bank of the Sutlej River and is 5 km from Rupnagar.

The Gurdwara is built in memory of the visit of Guru Gobind Singh. He is said to have visited this place four times. There is an interesting story about this place. When Guru Gobind Singh was returning to Anandpur after winning the battle of Bhangani, he asked the laborers working at a Bhatta (Kiln) for a place to stay. The laborers without realizing him, pointed towards the burning kiln. As soon as the hoop of Guruís horse touched the burning kiln, it became cold.

Fairs such as Jor Mela and the anniversary of Baba Jiwan Singh Ji are organized here. The Gurdwara is on the main highway from Chandigarh to Kullu.
