MALLAN, village 15 km southwest of Jaito (30Â°-26\’N, 74Â°-53\’E) in Faridkot district of the Punjab, claims a historical shrine, Gurdwara Ramsar Patshahi X, one km north of the village where Guru Gobind Singh is said to have stopped for a short while travelling towards Khidrana, now Muktsar, in December 1705. The Gurdwara, a flat-roofed hall inside a walled compound entered through a steel gate, is maintained by the village sangat.
Mallan rose to prominence during the Akali agitation at Jaito. 1923-25. The Sikh bands comprising 25 volunteers each which set out daily from Muktsar, resolved to reach Gurdwara Gangsar at Jaito to resume the akhand path or continuous recitation of the Guru Granth Sahib interrupted by Nabha state authorities, made an overnight halt in this village.
