MAHRON, village 7 km southeast of Moga (30Â°48\’N, 75Â°10\’E) in Moga district, has a historical shrine, Gurdwara Guru Sar, in memory of Guru Hargobind who, according to the local tradition, stopped here on 18 Savan 1674 Bk/17July 1617 on his way from Kaonke and Maddoke to Darauli. The Gurdwara stands on the bank of a pond to the north of the village. It is a new building, a small square domed room, raised in 1931, replacing the old shrine. Additions in the form of a hall with some ancillary buildings were made in 1962.
A pavilion has since been constructed for larger assemblies. The Guru Granth Sahib is now placed not in the older building but in the hall, on a masonry platform. The Gurdwara is managed by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a village committee. Special divans and community meals are held on every amavasya, the last day of the dark half of the lunar month.
