KARHALI, a village 20 km south of Patiala, has a historical shrine called Gurdwara Karhali Sahib, commemorating the stay here of Guru Tegh Bahadur during one of his travels through the Malva region. According to local tradition. Guru Hargobind had also visited the site while on his way to Kurukshetra. The present building, a 6metre square sanctum with a 6metre wide verandah around it, within a highwalled compound was constructed by Maharaja Karam Singh (17981845) of Patiala. It has now a mosaic floor. Guru ka Larigar and a row of residential rooms are also within the compound. The small sarovar outside the compound has been added during recent decades. The Gurdwara owns 35 acres of land. It is managed by a local committee under the auspices of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee. Largely attended gatherings take place on the fifth of the light half of every lunar month. 1. Gian Singh, Giani, Twarikh Gwduarian. Aimilsar, n.d.
