CHANDPUR, village connected by a 4km stretch of link road to Ropar Nangal road near Kotia power house, is sacred to Guru Har Rai (1630-61), who came here on visits several times. Gurdwara Guru Har Rai Sahib marking the site of the Guru`s camp is also known as Gurdwara Nira Sahib (from nira, i.e. fodder for the Guru`s horses). The present three storeyed domed building raised in 1950 has the sanctum on the ground floor. The Gurdwara is affiliated to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, but is managed by the local sangat.
