KANECH, village 20 km southeast of Ludhiana (30Â°54`N, 75Â°52`E), has a historical gurudwara called Manji Sahib Patshahi Dasviri. Guru Gobind Singh stopped in this village for a short time in the course of his journey from Machhivara into interior of Malva in December 1705. He was still disguised as the Pir of Uchch. As a local farmer, Fatta by name, came to pay homage and offered to render any service he would command, the Guru asked him to lend him a horse. Fatta went home and brought a gaunt mare. The Guru rejected it and said that nothing except his best horse would do. Fatta evaded the Guru`s bidding by making a false excuse that the horse had been taken away by his soninlaw. The Guru smiled and resumed his journey in the palanquin; but when Fatta returned home, he found that his horse had died of a snakebite. A Manji Sahib established later to commemorate the Guru`s visit has since been replaced by a larger building. It comprises a rectangular hall, with the sanctum within and a verandah around it. There is a domed square room above the sanctum. The Gurdwara, on the top of a mound, is administered by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a village committee. 1.
