Sri Hargobindpur


Sri Hargobindpur is a historical town situated on the banks of Beas River in Gurdaspur District. It is located about 36 km south-east of Gurdaspur.

The town is named after Guru Hargobind. As many as 40 wells were built by the Guru here in a planned manner. Guru Ki maseet (a mosque), which was gifted by the Guru to the Muslims, is the major interest here. Numerous temples and Gurdwaras add to the historical importance of the town. A fort, Zenankhana (residence for women) and historical gates in a dilapidated condition shed light on the significance of this historical town.

Nearest airport is at Amritsar. Batala Junction Railway Station serves Sri Hargobindpur.
