JINDVAL, village 1 km southeast of Bahga (31011`N, 76″E) along the Phagwara Nawanshahr road in Nawanshahr district of the Punjab, is sacred to Guru Hargobind, who stayed here for a time, during Ins journey from Kartarpur to Kiratpur in 1635, to get his favourite horse, Suhela, treated. The original building of the shrine, Gurdwara Charan Kahval Patshahi Chhevin, constructed by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, was replaced by a new one raised in 1947. Built in a walled compound entered through an imposing gateway, the central building standing on a high plinth is a square marble floored hall with the sanctum in the middle and a verandah around it.
Above the sanctum is a domed room topped by a gold plated pinnacle. The sarovar is to the north of the hall and Guru ka Langar and Mata Nanaki Library to its south. The Gurdwara is managed by a local committee under the auspices of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee. Besides the daily services and observance of major Sikh anniversaries, a largely attended religious fair is held on 21st of Har (usually 4 July) every year.
