ḌAGRŪ, village 11 km west of Mogā (30 - 48'N, 750- 10'E) in the Punjab, has a historical shrine, Gurdwārā Tambū Māl Sāhib Pātshāhī VII, dedicated to Gurū Har Rāi, who encamped here in the course of his journey through the Mālvā region, in the early 1650's. He is said to have stayed here for a considerable time during which he supervised the construction of shrines at Ḍaraulī Bhāī. The present building, constructed in 1968, comprises a hall with a high ceiling, with the sanctum in the centre where the Gurū Granth Sāhib is seated. The old vaṇ tree under which Gurū Har Rāi is believed to have held the daily services still stands, adjacent to the hall, to the north of it. The shrine is affiliated to the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee but is managed by a granthī supported by donations from the devotees.
