NAṚĀLĪ, village in Gujjarkhān subdivision of the Rāwalpiṇḍī district in Pakistan, had a historical Sikh shrine, Gurdwārā Pātshāhī VI, commemorating the visit of Gurū Hargobind who briefly halted here during his journey towards Kashmīr in 1619. The Gurū's purpose was to meet in this village an old Sikh, Bhāī Harbaṅs, popularly known as Harbaṅs Tapā, i.e. Harbaṅs the Ascetic. The Gurdwārā, which had within its compound Harbaṅs' samādh or tomb, had to be abandoned as a sequel to the partition of the Punjab in 1947 causing a two-way migration of population.
