KHIVA KALAN, village 6 km north of BhTkhl (3()°3`N, 75"33`E) in Mansa district of tlie Punjab, is sacred to Guru Tegh Bahadur who passed through here during one of his journeys across the countryside. Tlie villagers with the exception of a farmer, Singha by name, did not pay any attention to tlie holy visitor. Singha offered his services, supplied the Guru`s camp with firewood and cooking utensils as well as with forage for the animals. A shrine was established later to mark the site where Guru Tegh Bahadur had camped. The present Gurdwara Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib PatshahT IX stands in a 50metre square brickpaved compound, with the sanctum on a high plinth. The building is topped by a fourcornered dome. The Gurdwara owns 80 acres of land and is managed by the Shiromam Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a local committee. Besides the daily worship and the celebration of major Sikh anniversaries, religious gatherings take place on the first of every BikramT month.
