Dharamsala Uttam Singh Ji at Dharamkhel, Bannu
The village called Dharmakhel is very close to Bannu City. It is three kilometers from the bus stand of Bannu city. The village is located on Kohat road just across the river. This shrine is situated in a narrow street on the right hand just after the entrance to the village. Once it used to be the centre of Sikh Sangat of Bannu city. A new building has been erected after demolishing the old one. It is at present being used as a Primary school. It does not appear as a Dharamsala but wears the look of an ordinary school. The local people call it Dharamsala wala school.
