Gurdwara Garna Sahib

Gurdwara Garna Sahib is situated at Bodal, a village located about 4 km from Dasayu in Hoshiarpur District of Punjab. This Gurdwara has been built to commemorate the visit of Guru Hargobind Sahib, the sixth Sikh Guru. This place, previously a dense forest, was a favorite haunt of the Guru. The Gurdwara derives its name from the ‘garna’ tree (Capparis Horrida), under which the guru used to rest occasionally. This tree can be seen even today, near the Gurdwara. The inner sanctum of the Gurdwara has an octagonal dome and marble floor. The gateway to the shrine is a massive 3-storeryed structure, leading to the spacious main hall. An annual fair is held at the Gurdwara to celebrate the Baisakhi festival. Bodal is on the national highway leading to Hoshiarpur. The nearest railhead is the Hoshiarpur Railway Station. Amritsar International Airport is the nearest airport.
