RĀMPUR village about 3 km from Dorāhā (30º-42'N,76º-1'E)in Ludhiāṇā district, has a historical shrine called Gurdwārā Reṛū Sāhib. Gurū Gobind Siṅgh, while travelling from Māchhīvāṛā into the interior of Mālvā country, is believed to have stayed here briefly under a reṛū (Mimosa leucophloea) tree. Hence the name of the Gurdwārā. The present building complex, constructed under the supervision of Sant Bhagvān Siṅgh (d.1975), comprises a large hall in the centre, and rows of rooms for pilgrims around it on three sides. The fourth side has a spacious paved courtyard. The sanctum is at the western end of the hall. Above the hall there is a large lotus dome over the sanctum, with smaller domes at the corners. All domes have gilded pinnacles. The Gurdwārā is administered by sant successors of Bābā Bhagvān Siṅgh.
