SĪOKE, or Sīhoke, village in Ḍaskā subdivision of Siālkoṭ district in Pakistan, had a Sikh shrine, Gurdwārā Chhoṭā Nankāṇā, commemorating Gurū Nānak’s visit. At the time of his visit, the village was known as Bharovāl and, according to local tradition, he put up here with a devotee named Bhāī Rūpā. The Gurdwārā, about one kilometre soutwest of the village, was affiliated to Shiromaṇī Gurdwārā Parbandhak Committee, Amritsar, until 1947 when it was abandoned in the mass exodus following the partition of the Punjab.
