JARG, village 19 km southwest of Khanna `(30°42`N, 76°13`E) in Ludhiana district of the Punjab, claims a historical shrine, Gurdwara Hargobindpura Sahib, dedicated to Guru Hargobind, who, according to local tradition, made a brief halt here in a grove, about 400 metres southwest of the village. This grove lay along an old cart track wliich connected Rauni to Jandali but the track is no longer in existence. The place is now approached by JargSirthala link road.

A memorial platform, later replaced by a modest hut, existed here, while the villagers constructed a spacious shrine inside the village which they also call Gurdwara Hargobindpura Sahib. The Niharigs of the Buddha Dal have now constructed a gurudwara at the older site. It comprises a square assembly hall and a couple of residential rooms. The Guru Granth Sahib is seated in the middle of the hall.
