JAGADHRI (30°10`N, 77"18`E), an old town, in presentday Yamunanagar in Ambala district of Haryana, has a historical gurudwara situated in the interior. The shrine is named after Guru Hargobind, although it is not certain whether he visited Jagadhri at all. Guru Gobind Singh, however, is said to have travelled this way from Kapal Mochan in 1688. A small gurudwara existed here before the present building was raised in 1945. The new building consists of a rectangular hall with a verandah in the front.

The hall encloses an inner pavilion for the Guru Granth Sahib. On the left of the hall, as one enters, is the Guru ka Larigar. Across a paved compound, there is a suite of rooms originally built for pilgrims, but now being utilized to run a primary school. The management of the Gurdwara is in the hands of a local committee under the auspices of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.
