UGANI, a small village 10 km from Rajpura (30°28`N, 76°37`E), in Patiala district, has its twin shrines dedicated to Guru Tegh Bahadur and Guru Gobind Singh. Both are located in the same building, constructed by Maharaja Karam Singh of Patiala (1798-1845). The Gurdwara comprises three small rooms in a row. The rooms on the sides have low domes above them and low platforms within. The one on the right is dedicated to Guru Tegh Bahadur ; the next building is dedicated to Guru Gobind Singh. The Guru Granth Sahib is seated in the flatroofed room in the middle. The Gurdwara is managed by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a local committee.

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.
