SARHALA (popularly known as Sarhala Rannuan), village 12 km west of Bahga (31`1 I`M, 76″E) in Jalandhar district of the Punjab, has within its revenue limits a historical shrine, Gurdwara Gurplah Panj Tahli, dedicated to Guru Tegh Bahadur (1621-75), who stayed here once during a journey through the Doaba country. The Gurdwara is situated in the fields between Sarhala and Chakk Guru, another village also associated with Guru Tegh Bahadur`s visit.
The present building was raised in 1978 by Sant Seva Singh, who continued to manage it. It is a four storeyed building, with the marble floored hall at the ground floor. Guru ka Langar is to the left of the main building. Besides the daily services, major Sikh anniversaries are observed with special divans. The biggest event of the year is a religious fair held on the occasion of Hola Mahalla in March.
