RĀMPURĀ KALĀṄ, a village in Lahore district of Pakistan hardly 1.5 km from the Indo-Pakistan border, had a historical Gurdwārā commemorating the visit of Gurū Hargobind (1595-1644), who once halted here during one of his journeys between Amritsar and Lahore. The shrine which had been looked after by a line of Udāsī priests came under the control of the Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee during the Gurdwārā Reform movement of the 1920's, but had to be abandoned at the time of mass migrations caused by the partition of the Punjab in 1947.
