JIND (29″18`N, 76″19`E), a district town in Haryana, was once the capital of a Sikh slate of this name. Even after the capital had been shifted to Sarigrur in 1827, the coronation ceremony of the rulers continued to be performed at Jind. GURDWARA MANJI SAHIB SRI GURU TEGH BAHADUR SAHIB, commemorating the visit of Guru Tegh Bahadur, was constructed by Raja Gajpat Singh, the first Sikh ruler of Jind state. Of the original building only the three storeyed gateway now remains.

The rest has been replaced by a modern building with a spacious assembly hall the cornerstone of which was laid on 20 April 19`75. It is topped with a massive dome, with a domed pavilion at each corner. To the cast of the hall is the surovar. Accomodation for residential purpose and Guru ka Larigar is to the south of it. The Gurdwara is administered by a local committee with the assistance of a manager appointed by the Shiromam Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.
