BHADRA (29Â°10`N, 750151E) in Ganganagar district in Rajasthan, was, according to Sikh chronicles, visited by Guru Gobind Singh in 1706. There is however no historical shrine there. There are very few Punjabi Sikhs in the town but a number of Sindhi families, who though shaven are followers of the Sikh faith, setded here after 1947. Sikhs of Punjabi and Sindhi origin have a small Panchayati Gurdwara in Sindhi Mohalla.
Notwithstanding what the chronicles say, the general belief among the Sikhs of this area is that the Guru went from Nohar to Sahva (Suheva) by the direct shorter route through the village ofSurpur. This tradition is supported by Bhai Kahn Singh, the author of Gurushabad Ratnakar Mahan Kosh. Possibly the Guru visited Bhadra during his stay either at Nohar or at Sahva (Suheva)
