SĪMBHAṚO, village 16 km from Paṭiālā, claims a historical shrine known as Gurdwārā Sāhib Pātshāhī Nauviṅ (Ḍerā Sāhib). Gurū Tegh Bahādur is said to have stayed in this village while travelling through this area. An old Mañjī Sāhib which marked the site where he had halted, was recently replaced by a modern gurdwārā constructed by Sant Hazūrā Siṅgh. A new flag mast was raised on 14 December 1978. The sanctum inside the rectangular dīvān hall has a small conical dome over it. The sarovar is within the Gurdwārā compound. The shrine is managed by Sant Hazūrā Siṅgh. Large gatherings take place on every full-moon day. An important festival observed is the annual fair held on the full-moon day of the month of Māgh (January).
