JAGĀDHRĪ (30º-10'N, 77º-18'E), an old town, in present-day Yamunānagar in Ambālā district of Haryāṇā, has a historical Gurdwārā situated in the interior. The shrine is named after Gurū Hargobind, although it is not certain whether he visited Jagādhrī at all. Gurū Gobind Siṅgh however, is said to have travelled this way from Kapāl Mochan in 1688. A small gurdwārā existed here before the present building was raised in 1945. The new building consists of a rectangular hall with a verandah in the front. The hall encloses an inner pavilion for the Gurū Granth Sāhib. On the left of the hall, as one enters, is the Gurū kā Laṅgar. Across a paved compound, there is a suite of rooms originally built for pilgrims, but now being utilized to run a primary school. The management of The Gurdwārā is in the hands of a local committee under the auspices of the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee.
