KOT BHAI, village 7 km northeast of Giddarbaha (30Â°12`N, 74Â°39`E) in Faridkot district of the Punjab, is named after Bhai Bhagatu, a devout Sikh who served the Fifth, Sixth and the Seventh Gurus. When Guru Gobind Singh (16661708) visited the village in 1706, two bdmds, i.e. shopkeeperscummoneylenders, Rangi and Ghummi by name, served him with devotion and begged to be initiated into the order of the Khalsa. There are two Gurudwaras commemorating the Guru`s visit one inside the village where those two Sikhs resided, and the other on the eastern end of the village marking the site where Guru Gobind Singh had camped. Both shrines are controlled by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a local committee. 1. Gian Singh, Giani, Twankh Gwdudrian. Amritsar, n.d.
