BACHCHHOĀṆĀ, village 7 km northeast of Buḍhlāḍā Maṇḍī (29º-55'N, 75º-33'E), is sacred to Gurū Tegh Bahādur, who, according to Sākhī Pothī, came here from Barhe and stayed for seven days under a pīpal tree on the bank of a pond. The Gurū was accompanied by a large saṅgat and the Raṅghar inhabitants of Bachchhoāṇā served them ample quantities of milk and curds. Gurū Tegh Bahādur expressed delight at the extensive green pastures around the village and blessed the villagers for their good milch cattle. Gurdwārā Pātshāhī IX, commemorating the Gurū's visit, comprises a sanctum, within a hall, with a verandah on three sides. The walled compound, entered through a high gateway, also encompasses Gurū kā Laṅgar as well as rooms for pilgrims. The Gurdwārā owns 50 acres of land and is administered by the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee, through a local committee.
