VANDAR, named after the Jatt clan who inhabits it, is a village 22 km southeast of Kot Kapura (30°35`N, 74°49`E) in Moga district of the Punjab. It has a historical gurdwara dedicated to Guru Gobind Singh, who made a brief halt here on his way from Dina to Kot Kapura. The shrine, called Gurdwara Sahib Patshahi X, is situated inside a walled compound entered through a gateway. The old shrine, a small domed room, is still preserved, but the Guru Granth Sahib is seated in a separate flatroofed hall where daily services take place. The Gurdwara, endowed with 15 acres of land. is managed by a local committee under the auspices of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee. A largelyattended annual fair is held annually on the occasion of Baisakhi.

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.
