The village Jhalian is in P.S. Burki of the Lahore district. It is five kilometers east of Burki and Tongas can be hired from Burki to go to the village.

These two villages of Jhalian and Dhilwan are linked with each other and that is why they are also called as Jhalian Dhilwan.

There is a sacred place in the village which was touched by the feet of Sat Gur Hargobind Ji. Gurdwara is beautiful and has been constructed like a govt bungalow with a verandah in front and with two rooms at the back.

8 ghumaon Land is endowed by the villagers to the shrine. A refugee family from Arnbala is settled in it now.
