SIARH, village 14 km southeast of Mandi Ahmadgarh (30Â°42N, 75″51`E), inLudhiana district of the Punjab, has a historical shrine, Gurdwara Gurusar Patshahi Chhevin. It is said that as Guru Hargobind was moving from Rara towards Jagera, his horse suddenly became so sick that the Guru had to break his journey in a thicket near this village. The horse soon died. The Guru had the animal covered with a costly shroud and buried. According to local tradition, two greedy residents of Siarh, who had witnessed the burial, dug up the grave after the Guru`s departure, removed the shroud, and sold it.
Misfortune befell the miscreants. The villagers began to treat the spot as a holy place. They built a samadh over the horse`s grave and a platform where Guru Hargobind had sat. In course of time, this platform gave place to a simple hut attended by stray sadhus. In 1975 Bk/AD 1918, one Bhai Tahil Singh established a gurdwara. To the square domed sanctum have recently been added a hall and a small sarovar. The shrine though affiliated to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee as one unscheduled gurdwara, is managed by a village committee. Besides the principal Sikh anniversaries, the birthday of Guru Hargobind is celebrated with special .
