SIMBHARO, village 16 km from Patiala, claims a historical shrine known as Gurdwara Sahib Patshahi Nauvin (Dera Sahib). Guru Tegh Bahadur is said to have stayed in this village while travelling through this area. An old Manji Sahib which marked the site where he had halted, was recently replaced by a modern gurdwara constructed by Sant Hazura Singh.
A new flag mast was raised on 14 December 1978. The sanctum inside the rectangular divan hall has a small conical dome over it. The sarovar is within the Gurdwara compound. The shrine is managed by Sant Hazura Singh. Large gatherings take place on every full moon day. An important festival observed is the annual fair held on the full moon day of the month of Magh (January).
