Gurudwaras in Pakistan

Gurudwara Bairi Sahib Chhevin Patshahi, Kharak

Gurudwara Bairi Sahib Chhevin Patshahi, Kharak Distt Lahore

A village in Burki Police station of tehsil & district’Lahore is known as "Kharak". Gurdwara "Bair Sahib" of Guru Hargobind Ji is about half a kilometer east of the village. Sat Gur Hargobind ji came here from Padhana and tied his horse to the Bair tree. There was a mud Damdama Sahib at the place where Guru Dev Ji sat. It is at a distance of about 20 steps from this bair tree. It was later built with bricks. The well used by Guru Ji to satiate his thirst is close by. Once the Prakash of Guru Granth Sahib used to take place and a fair used to be held on the 7th of Poh. All of these have now vanished but for a grove of trees.
