NANHERI,   village on the bank of the River Ghaggar, in Patiala district, about 10 km southwest of Ambala City (30° 23`N. 76° 47`E), has a shrine called Gurdwara Patshahi IX ate X, commemorating the visits of Guru Tegh Bahadur and Guru Gobind Singh. Guru Tegh Bahadur is said to have stayed in this village for several days with the local masand, Bhai Ghoga, while on his way to the eastern parts in 1665, and Guru Gobind Singh came here as a child from Lakhnaur in 1670 at the request of Bhai Ghoga.

The present building, right on the embankment protecting the village from the vagaries of the seasonal river, comprises an assembly hall with a square sanctum inside it. The Gurdwara is maintained by the village sangat.
