HASANPUR QABULPUR, twin villages separated only by a narrow lane, in Patiala district, about 15 km southeast of Rajpura (30Â°28`N, 76″37`E), arc sacred to Guru Tegh Bahadur and Guru Gobind Singh. Guru Gobind Singh is said to have come here as a child from Lakhnaur in 1670, and Guru Tegh Bahadur during his tour of the Malva in 1672-74. According to local tradition, two Muslim Shaikhs, Azmat and Bahra, served the Gurus with devotion and were rewarded with special letters of appreciation.
A small domed gurudwara was constructed by the local sangat in 1918. This is now enclosed in a highroofed rectangular hall. The shrine named Gurdwara Patshahi Naumi Ate Dasmi is within the revenue limits of Hasanpur, but is managed by a joint committee of the two villages, Hasanpur and Qabulpur.
