MUNIARPUR, a small village in Kurukshetra district of Haryana, 13 km east of Thanesar (29°58`N, 76°50`E) is sacred to the memory of Guru Tegh Bahadur who stayed here for a night while on his way from Kurukshetra to Duddhi and Bani Badarpur. A low platform was erected on the site where the Guru had encamped outside the village. It was replaced by a modern .Gurdwara constructed in 1959-60 by Sikhs of the surrounding villages, there being few Sikh families in Muniarpur itself.

Located inside a walled compound, the Gurdwara has a small divan hall with a sanctum on which the Guru Granth Sahib is seated in a glasspanelled palaki. The shrine is managed by a local committee. Devotees from the neighboring villages gather on amavasya, the last day of the dark half of the month, when kirtan and community meals take place.
