MAUṚ, also called ḍhilvāṅ Mauṛ to distinguish it from Mauṛ Kalāṅ in Baṭhiṇḍā district of the Punjab, is a village 30 km from Barnālā (30º-22'N, 75º-32'E), via Tapā. In a thicket about 2 km northeast of Mauṛ, there used to be a pond, called Dulamī kī ḍhāb, where, according to local tradition, Gurū Tegh Bahādur used to come often for his afternoon ride from ḍhilvāṅ. A shrine was established later near this pond which came to be called Dulamsar. The shrine, now called Gurdwārā Sāhib Dulamsar Pātshāhī IX, is built on a low mound. The domed sanctum is decorated with floral designs painted on the walls and on the cupola. A couple of rooms across a small courtyard provide accommodation for the staff. There is on the mound an old narrow well, known as Siṅghāṅ-vālī Khuhī. The Gurdwārā has about five acres of land donated to it and is managed by Nihaṅgs of the Buḍḍhā Dal.
