Guru Ji stayed in a grove of bair trees outside the village which stands to date. There is now a graveyard in this grove of jujube trees. There used to be a Gurdwara near the place where Guru Ji had stayed. This Gurdwara has collapsed. When the writer went to this place on the 4th of May 1997 it was a field of blooming sunflower.
