SANHER, 8 km southeast of Zira (30° 58`N, 74° 59 ° E), in Firozpur district, is sacred to Guru Hargobind, who visited the village on his way from Amritsar to Darauli. The Gurdwara Patshahl`Chhevin was in the control of Udasi priests before it came under the administration of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee. It has been reconstructed since. The Guru Granth Sahib is seated on a square platform at the north end of a large rectangular hall.

Above the sanctum, there are two storeys of rooms with a narrow and tall dome on top. The dome has an ornamental gold pinnacle with a khanda as fmial. The sarovar has a peculiar design. It is a small circular tank around a wide well, with steps leading down to the water level from the direction of the hall.
