Bhadaur is an ancient town located about 25 km north-west of Barnala, Sangrur District. Guru Gobind Singh, the last Sikh Guru, had blessed this town with his presence in 1705. Major point of attraction at Bhadaur is the Sikh shrine Gurdwara Sahib Andruni Patshahi 10. Built in honor of the Sikh Guru who came here from Dina, the gurdwara preserves a sword and a dagger, which are believed to have been used by Guru Gobind Singh, as sacred relics. Founded by Baba Ala Singh, a Sikh warrior and noble of the 18th century, Bhadaur is noted for numerous historical shrines. It is believed that Guru Hargobind, the sixth Sikh Guru, also passed through this region. Gurdwara Sahib Bairuni Patshahi is another shrine located about 6 km west of Bhadaur. Baisakhi Festival is celebrated here with much pomp and merriment. Ludhiana Airport is the nearest airport and the nearby railway station is at Tappa.
