Relic of Lakhan Majra, Rohtak

Lakhan Majra, a village located in the Rohtak district of Haryana state, houses the most beautiful Sikh shrine called Gurdwara Manjhi Sahib. Initially, this shrine was not as big but just an itsy hut dedicated to the great Guru, Tegh Bahadur, who halted here while travelling from Jind to Delhi. Eventually, it gained a lot of popularity through its devotees and worshippers. Slowly and steadily the small hut grew into a big structure (Gurdwara) with the financial help of the devotees and under the supervision of the local committee. This Gurdwara is located on Jind Road, near Mataji Gate. It is about one and a half kms from the railway station.

Thousands of pilgrims visit this shrine every year, which is now a double-storeyed gateway. Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee supervises the shrine with the help of a local district committee. The beautiful Meenakari (an art of painting) and Chitrakari (an art of figure painting) is displayed in the Gurdwara.

Hola Mohalla is the biggest festival of the year celebrated in the month of March. Although this Sikh shrine in Lakhan Majra somewhat surpassed the historical importance of this village of Rathi Jats, its own antiquity is no less fascinating.
