GHULĀL, an old village in Ludhiāṇā district, 8 km west of Samrālā (30º-50'N, 76º-11'E), claims a historical shrine dedicated to Gurū Gobind Siṅgh. This Gurdwārā is not included in older lists of Sikh historical shrines, but local tradition indicates that Gurū Gobind Siṅgh, on his way from Māchhīvāṛā to the interior of Mālvā country, stopped in this village for a while before proceeding to Lall. The Gurdwārā stands on a mound inside the village said to be the site of an older shrine. Close to the hall, there is a low-domed square room on a high plinth. This is believed to be the exact spot where the Gurū first alighted. The Gurdwārā is managed by the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee through a village committee.
