GHAVINDI, village in Lahore dislrict of Pakistan, only one kilometre from the IndoPak border opposite Khaira, had a historical shrine commemorating Guru Nanak`s visit. Upon his arrival in the village, the Guru is said to have put up under a lahurd tree (Cordia latifolia). On this site was built Gurdwara Lahura Sahib (lahurd being a pronunciational variation of lasurd), which had to be abandoned at the time of mass migrations caused by the partition of the Punjab in 1947.
