JAGHEṚĀ, also called Nānakpur Jagheṛā, a village about 4 km south of Ahmadgaṛh ( 30º-42'N, 75º-51'E) in Ludhiāṇā district of the Punjab, is sacred to Gurū Hargobind, who halted here during one of his journeys through these parts.Gurdwārā Sāhib Pātshāhī VI, also called Gurdwārā Mañjī Sāhib, on the Ludhiāṇā-Mālerkoṭlā road, commemorates the Gurū's visit. Local tradition enshrines memories of Gurū Nānak's visit as well and the village pond near the present shrine has of old been known as Nānaksar. After Gurū Nānak, the village is called Nānakpur Jagheṛā. The old Mañjī Sāhib was attended by Udāsī priests till the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee took it over after prolonged legal proceedings. The present building, which replaced the Mañjī Sāhib, comprises a square flat-roofed sanctum with a hall, 9x7 metre, in the front. The Gurdwārā is managed by a local committee under the auspices of the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee.
