Founded in 1718 by S Duna Singh, Bhadaur lies 27 km from Barnala on the Barnala-Jaito road. It is 64 km north-west of the district headquarters, Sangrur.

The main attraction includes a gurdwara built in the memory of Guru Gobind Singh who is believed to have visited this place. A great fair known as ‘Mata Rani Ka Mela’ is observed here during the months of March-April. Another fair celebrated here on Baisakhi day is associated with the memory of Baba Charan Dass whose Samadhi also is built here.

There are two government high schools, one each for boys and girls, and a 4-bedded civil dispensary at Bhadaur. Another landmark is a big tank where both Hindus and Sikhs take a dip.
