NĀGRĀ, village 16 km east of Sunām (300-7'N; 75º-48'E) in the Punjab, was, according to local tradition, visited by Gurū Hargobind and Gurū Tegh Bahādur. A modest shrine built of baked bricks honoured the memory of the latter, but it is no longer in existence. The one dedicated to Gurū Hargobind, however, survives. It is called Gurdwārā Akāl Buṅgā Pātshāhī Chhevīṅ, and is situated at the southern end of the village. Its main hall, constructed in the 1960's, contains within it the domed sanctum marking the site of the original shrine. Gurū kā Laṅgar is still housed in the old rooms behind the hall. The Gurdwārā is looked after by Nihaṅgs of the Buḍḍhā Dal.
