GHAVIṆḌĪ, village in Lahore district of Pakistan, only one kilometre from the Indo-Pak border opposite Khālṛā, had a historical shrine commemorating Gurū Nānak's visit. Upon his arrival in the village, the Gurū is said to have put up under a lahūṛā tree (Cordia latifolia) . On this site was built Gurdwārā Lahūṛā Sāhib (lahūṛā being a pronunciational variation of lasūṛā), which had to be abandoned at the time of mass migrations caused by the partition of the Punjab in 1947.
