    This place is 1.5 Km from Ropar bus terminal. Its between Chamkaur Sahib And Kesgarh Sahib. Gurudwara Parivar Vichora at river Sirsa is about 2km upstream from here. Sirsa is a tributary of Satluj. Guru Gobind Singh must have travelled through this region while going to Chamkaur after vacating KesGarh Fort.

    Makes me wonder, how you got blogging? If you don't mind please share, how you decided to blog. 'Cuz I've been there and just no one seems to take that 'pause' that you take through your day. It's wonderful. God bless.

    Sat Naam Wahe Guru!
