Bharatgarh is an ancient village associated with Guru Tegh Bahadur, the ninth Sikh guru. Located about 18 km north of Rupnagar, this village is one of the major Sikh sites in Punjab. Tradition has it that the guru had halted here in 1675, in the course of his journey to Delhi. Main attraction is a beautiful gurdwara with a flat roofed rectangular hall. Built in 1932, the gurdwara attracts a large number of devotees to Bharatgarh. Kiratpur Sahib is about 10 km from here. Kiratpur Sahib Railway Station is the major railhead nearby and the nearest airport is Chandigarh Airport.
