Gurdwara Karamsar Rara Sahib

Gurdwara Karamsar Rara Sahib is 22 km south-east of Ludhiana, 14 km north-east of Ahmedgarh and 22 km north-west of Khanna. It lies on the Chawa- Payal-Ahmedgarh road and is situated on the banks of Bathinda branch of the Sirhind Canal.

The devotees enter the Gurdwara through the base of a lofty clock tower crowned with a dome. The Gurdwara complex encompasses a Privy Chamber (Bhora Sahib), a Congregation Hall (Divan Hall) and a holy tank. Another attraction is the gallery of the divan hall where pictures of saints are displayed. It also has paintings of scenes from the Sikh history. Near the main-gate of the divan hall is a library with a collection of books on Sikhism, pictures of saints and audio-video cassettes of their sermons.

The month-day (Sangrand) and the full-moon day (Pooran-mashi) are celebrated here with religious fervor.
