BARHE, village 6 km southwest of Buḍhlāḍā Maṇḍī (29º-55'N, 75º-33'E) in Baṭhiṇḍā district of the Punjab, is sacred to Gurū Tegh Bahādur, who, according to the Sākhī Pothī spent a rainy season here, while travelling through the Mālvā country. Gurdwārā Srī Gurū Tegh Bahādur Sāhib commemorating the visit is on the north-western outskirts of the village, near a big pond a part of which has been converted into a sarovar. An extensive complex has developed around the old Mañjī Sāhib, a domed room with a square platform within it, near an old vaṇ tree. The Gurū Granth Sāhib is seated in a separate hall. There is a separate larger pavilion for holding special congregations on festival days. An annual fair is held on Nimāṇī Ekādashī or Nirjalā Ekādashī falling on the 11th of the brighter half of the lunar month of Jeṭh (May-June). The Gurdwārā owns 65 acres of land and is administered by the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee through a manager who is assisted by a local committee.
