SARHINA, village 15km from Moga (30″48n, 75″10E) in Moga district, has a historical shrine, Gurdwara Patshahi Chhevin. In 1631, when Guru Hargobind was staying with his brother in law, Sain Das, at Darauli, his first wife, Damodari, fell seriously ill. Her parents Bhai Narain Das and Mata Daya Kaur, on receipt of this information, set out from their village, Dalla, in the Doaba, for Darauli. As they arrived at Sarhina, hardly 6 km short of Darauli, they learnt that not only Damodari, but their elder daughter, Ramo, and her husband Sain Das, had also died.

This was more than the old couple could bear and they died of shock. Guru Hargobind had their bodies carried to Darauli for cremation. At Sarhina, the villagers established a small shrine in memory of the Guru and his parents in law. The present building, a rectangular hall including within it an octagonal domed sanctum, was constructed in 1944. A baoli was added in 1956. The Gurdwara is affiliated to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee and is managed by the local sangat.
