DODṚĀ, village 5 km southwest of Samāṇā (30º-11'N, 76º -11'E) in the Punjab, is sacred to Gurū Tegh Bahādur who visited it during one of his travels through the Mālvā region. A platform raised as a memorial to the Gurū's visit was replaced by the present Gurdwārā Pātshāhī IX in the beginning of the present century. Situated in a half-acre low-walled compound on the northern edge of the village, it consists of a domed sanctum, with a hall in front. An old pīpal tree, believed to be the one under which Gurū Tegh Bahādur had sat and delivered his message, still exists at the back of the hall. The Gurdwārā is maintained by the village saṅgat.
