MADDAR, village five kilometre north of Balloke head works in Pakistan, was known to Sikhs in prepartition Punjab for its Gurdwara Sachchi Manji and some relics of the Gurus it claimed to preserve. One of these was a cot (manji, in Punjabi, after which the Gurdwara was named), said to have been used by Guru Nanak at the time of his visit to the village. Another was one of the pair of Guru Amar Das\’ shoes kept in the house of Bhai Chaina Mall, also known as Pero Mall.
Some of Chaina Mall`s descendants went to live in another village Dhunni, near Hafizabad, in Gujranwala district, splitting the pair between the two villages. The third relic was a wooden staff which Guru Arjan during his visit to Maddar had, at their request, bestowed on his devotees. Gurdwara Sachchi Manji was abandoned at the time of migrations caused by the partition of the Punjab in 1947.
