GOBINDGARH or Mandi Gobindgarh, an industrial township 9 km west of Sirhind (30°38`N, 76°23`E) has a historical shrine called Gurdwara Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji. The Gurdwara commemorates the visit of Guru Hargobind who had made a brief halt here in the course of one of his journeys through Malva country. The old singleroom monument has since been replaced by a modern building, with a threestoreyed gateway forming an imposing facade. The main assembly hall is on the ground floor. On the roof there are decorative cupolas at the corners. The three storeyed sanctum is topped over by a lotus dome covered with rectangular chips of white glazed tile. The Gurdwara is under the control of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee.
