TĀLĀPUR, a village,3 km east of Chamkaur Sāhib (30º-53'N,76º-25'E) in Ropaṛ district of the Punjab, has a historical shrine,Gurdwārā Ṭibbī Sāhib. It stands on the top of a sandy mound (ṭibbī, in Punjabi) along a link road half a kilometre away from the village. On 6 December 1705, Gurū Gobind Siṅgh with his two elder sons and 40 Sikhs is said to have halted on this mound to survey the country in front before marching on to Chamkaur. The platform, constructed to mark the site, has recently been replaced by a modest looking single room Gurdwārā. The Gurū Granth Sāhib is seated inside the sanctum and is attended by Nihaṅg Sikhs.
