RAJOANA, village in Ludhiana district, on Guru Gobind Singh Marg, 10 km north of Raikot town (30Â° 39`N, 75Â° 37`E), has a shrine, Gurdwara Manji Sahib, commemorating the visit of Guru Gobind Singh in 1705. It is said that as Guru Gobind Singh, accompanied by Mahant Kirpal Das, was proceeding from Hchrari to Kamalpur, he was stopped here and served with a drink of milk by one MaT Bhatli. He was pleased at the old lady`s devotion and invited her to ask for a boon. Mal Bhalti wished only for further opportunities to serve him. She requested him to be seated on a col and allow himself to be carried thus by her sons to the next place of halt.
The Guru granted her request. The cot was carried to Kamalpur on the shoulders of the three sons of Mal Bhatti, one at each corner, Mahant Kirpal Das putting his shoulder to the fourth corner. A memorial was established in the village probably by Mal Bhatti herself. The present building of the Gurdwara is, however, of modern construction. In consists of a rectangular hall with a verandah in front, and a domed room in which the Guru Granth Sahib rests for the night.
