LITTAR, village in Ludhiāṇā district, 8 km northeast of Rāikoṭ (30º-39'N, 75º-37'E), has a historical shrine, Gurdwārā Mañjī Sāhib Chhevīṅ Pātshāhī . The Gurdwārā was established in memory of Gurū Hargobind, who is said to have stayed here briefly under a karīr tree during his sojourn in the Mālvā area in 1631-32. For this reason it is also known locally as Gurdwārā Karīr Sāhib. It was served by a line of Udāsī priests from among whom Sant Naraiṇ Dās is still remembered with respect. The shrine is now managed by the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee. The present building is a flat-roofed rectangular hall with a verandah on three sides constructed in 1972.
