HADĪĀBĀD, village 1.5 km west of Phagwāṛā (31º-14'N, 75º-46'E) in Kapūrthalā district of the Punjab, claims a historical shrine, Gurdwārā Chhevīṅ Pātshāhī, dedicated to Gurū Hargobind, who visited here during his brief sojourn at Phagwāṛā in 1635. Gurū Har Rāi is also said to have visited the site. The present building (cornerstone laid on 5 March 1950) is a three-storeyed structure topped by an octagonal domed pavilion. The main hall has a sanctum at the far end where the Gurū Granth Sāhib is seated. Adjoining the complex is the sarovar. The Gurdwārā is managed by a local committee under the overall control of the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee. Besides daily services, all major Sikh anniversaries are marked by special celebrations.
