HASANPUR-QABŪLPUR, twin villages separated only by a narrow lane, in Paṭiālā district, about 15 km southeast of Rājpurā (30º-28'N, 76º-37'E), are sacred to Gurū Tegh Bahādur and Gurū Gobind Siṅgh. Gurū Gobind Siṅgh is said to have come here as a child from Lakhnaur in 1670, and Gurū Tegh Bahādur during his tour of the Mālvā in 1672-74. According to local tradition, two Muslim Shaikhs, Azmat and Bāhrā, served the Gurūs with devotion and were rewarded with special letters of appreciation. A small domed gurdwārā was constructed by the local saṅgat in 1918. This is now enclosed in a high-roofed rectangular hall. The shrine named Gurdwārā Pātshāhī Naumī Ate Dasmī is within the revenue limits of Hasanpur, but is managed by a joint committee of the two villages, Hasanpur and Qabūlpur.
