CHAKAR, village 17 km south of Jagraon (30° 47`N, 75° 28`E), in Ludhiana district, is sacred both to Guru Hargobind and Guru Gobind Singh. Guru Hargobind passed through here in the course of his tour of the Malva in 1631-32 and Guru Gobind Singh at the end of 1705 after the battle of Chamkaur. The Gurdwara Guru Sar Patshahi VI and X, an imposing structure, is situated at the northwestern corner of the village. Constructed during the 1970`s, it is a large square hall with a square sanctum at the far end.

Above the sanctum are four storeys of square rooms, with decorative screens around them, topped by a ribbed lotus dome, an ornamental golden pinnacle and an umbrellashaped finial. The walls and ceiling of the entrance porch as well as the main hall are coated with stucco and inset with reflecting glass pieces. The 35metre square sarovar (holy tank) flanks the hall on the right as one enters the premises. Guru ka Langar (community kitchen) and lodgings are on the left. The Gurdwara is managed by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a village committee.
