BAḌḌOṄ, village 10 km southeast of Māhilpur in Hoshiārpur district of the Punjab, has a historical shrine, Gurdwārā Bābā Ajīt Siṅgh, commemorating the visit in March 1703 of Sāhibzādā Ajīt Siṅgh (1687-1705), the eldest son of Gurū Gobind Siṅgh. Sāhibzādā Ajīt Siṅgh, on his way back from Bassī Kalāṅ where he had gone to rescue a young Brāhmaṇ bride from the clutches of the local Paṭhān chieftain, halted here to cremate one of his warriors, Bhāī Karam Siṅgh, who had been wounded in the skirmish at Bassī and had since succumbed to his injuries. The Gurdwārā constructed by the local saṅgat in 1928 on the site of the original shrine inside the village comprises a flat-roofed hall, with the sanctum marked off by two pillars at the far end, and a 3-metre wide verandah on three sides. It is affiliated to the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee and is maintained by the local saṅgat.
