SARTHALI, a village 10 km south of Nurpur Bedi on Ropar Nurpur Bedi road in Ropar district of the Punjab, is sacred to Guru Gobind Singh, who arrived here from Anandpur on a brief visit. Gurdwara Ranthamba Sahib Patshahi Dasvin on the southern periphery of the village marks the spot where the Guru is believed to have stayed awhile. The sanctum is a 3.75metre square domed room in front of which a hall was built in 1970. A 21metrehigh Nishan Sahib stands on the left front of the main building. It is an unscheduled Gurdwara affiliated to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee and is managed by a committee of the local sangat.
