KHARAK BHŪRĀ, a large village in Jīnd district of Haryāṇā, was visited by Gurū Tegh Bahādur, who stayed here overnight while journeying from Dhamdhān to Jīnd. An old one-roomed shrine called Gurdwārā Mañjī Sāhib Naumī Pātshāhī exists to the east of the village. It is a small domed room, with the Gurū Granth Sāhib seated on a podium in the centre. Near by is the modern adjunct of the Gurdwārā, a flat-roofed building consisting of an assembly hall and a verandah on two-sides. The Gurdwārā is affiliated to the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee and is administered by the local managing committee at Jīnd, which appoints a granthī or Scripture-reader, who also acts as the custodian of the shrine and of the lands attached to it. There are no Sikh families in the village.
