HASANPUR QABULPUR, twin villages separated only by a narrow lane, in Patiala district, about 15 km southeast of Rajpura (30°28`N, 76"37`E), arc sacred to Guru Tegh Bahadur and Guru Gobind Singh. Guru Gobind Singh is said to have come here as a child from Lakhnaur in 1670, and Guru Tegh Bahadur during his tour of the Malva in 1672-74. According to local tradition, two Muslim Shaikhs, Azmat and Bahra, served the Gurus with devotion and were rewarded with special letters of appreciation.

A small domed gurudwara was constructed by the local sangat in 1918. This is now enclosed in a highroofed rectangular hall. The shrine named Gurdwara Patshahi Naumi Ate Dasmi is within the revenue limits of Hasanpur, but is managed by a joint committee of the two villages, Hasanpur and Qabulpur.

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.
