MATTU BHAI KE, village in Gujrariwala district of Pakistan, is sacred to Guru Hargobind, who briefly halted here travelling back from Kashmir in 1620. He exhorted the people to follow the path shown by Guru Nanak, and preached especially against the use of tobacco. The shrine commemorating the Guru`s visit was called Khara Sahib or Gurdwara Chhcviri Patshahl. It was affiliated to the Shiromam Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee until 1947 when it had to be abandoned in the wake of migrations caused by the partition of the Punjab.

World Gurudwaras

World Gurudwaras will strive to be most comprehensive directory of Historical Gurudwaras and Non Historical Gurudwaras around the world.The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
