Gurdwara Akalgarh Sahib Village Gharuan
This Gurdwara Sahib is sacred to Guru Har Rai. He visited the place during his travels in these parts. Several people accepted his teachings. They established a Dhramshala on the village. Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji also is believed to visited Gharuan, while on his way to Delhi in 1675. Guruji first went to the place inside the village commemorating the visit of Guru Har Rai. But the prists there probably not recognizing him, treated him with indifference. He came back and retired to a quiet groove about 300 metres north of the village. The villagers realizing their error came to make apologies. They requested Guruji to stay in Dhramshala, to which Guruji refused. According to another tradition Guruji came to this place and stayed for 10 days in 1670. A carpenter Balap Ram served him with much devotion.
