VĀNDAR, named after the Jaṭṭ clan who inhabits it, is a village 22 km southeast of Koṭ Kapūrā (30º-35'N, 74º-49'E) in Mogā district of the Punjab. It has a historical gurdwārā dedicated to Gurū Gobind Siṅgh, who made a brief halt here on his way from Dīnā to Koṭ Kapūrā. The shrine, called Gurdwārā Sāhib Pātshāhī X, is situated inside a walled compound entered through a gateway. The old shrine, a small domed room, is still preserved, but the Gurū Granth Sāhib is seated in a separate flat-roofed hall where daily services take place. The Gurdwārā, endowed with 15 acres of land, is managed by a local committee under the auspices of the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee. A largely attended annual fair is held annually on the occasion of Baisākhī.
