GURU KI DHAB, also known by its old name of Doda Tal, is north of Jaito (30°26`N, 74°53`E). Guru Gobind Singh passed through here travelling from the nearby village of Saravan during his journey westward from Dina in December 1705. The tdlor dhdb, lit. a large pond, came to be known as Guru ki Dhab in honour of the Guru`s sojourn. Most of the area has since been reclaimed for cultivation, but a gurudwara, with a small octagonal sarovar by its side, was constructed during the 1970`s. Large gatherings take place on every fullmoon day and the first of every Bikrami month attracts devotees in large numbers, especially women with small children, from the surrounding villages.

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.
