JARG, village 19 km southwest of Khannā (30º-42'N, 76º-13'E) in Ludhiāṇā district of the Punjab, claims a historical shrine, Gurdwārā Hargobindpurā Sāhib, dedicated to Gurū Hargobind, who, according to local tradition, made a brief halt here in a grove, about 400 metres southwest of the village. This grove lay along an old cart track which connected Rauṇī to Jaṇḍālī but the track is no longer in existence. The place is now approached by Jarg-Sirthalā link road. A memorial platform, later replaced by a modest hut, existed here, while the villagers constructed a spacious shrine inside the village which they also call Gurdwārā Hargobindpurā Sāhib. The Nihaṅgs of the Buḍḍhā Dal have now constructed a gurdwārā at the older site. It comprises a square assembly hall and a couple of residential rooms. The Gurū Granth Sāhib is seated in the middle of the hall.
