Bargari, village 15 km southeast of Kot Kapura (30Â° 35*N, 74Â° 49`E) in Faridkot district of the Punjab, is sacred to Guru Gobind Singh who visited it in December 1705 on his way from Dina to Kot Kapura. A shrine was established later on the site on the northern edge of the Village where the Guru had halted. Bargari gained prominence in 1924 during the Jaito campaign when the first Shahidi Jatha or band of Sikh volunteers, determined to reach Gurdwara Gangsar or meet martyrs` death, made, in its march from Amritsar, its last overnight halt at this Village. The Villagers served the Jatha as well as the large crowd that had gathered around it during its long journey with great devotion and zeal. <p >Gurdwara Patshahi Dasvin, inside a walled compound entered through a gateway, preserves the old sanctum, a 5metre square room, to which a 10metre square hall has been added in recent years. The Gurdwara is endowed with 20 acres of land and ismanaged by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a local committee. Besides the daily services, special divans take place on the first of every Bikrami month, and all major anniversaries on the Sikh calendar are observed. The occasion marked by special fervour is the annual festival of Baisakhi, birthday of the Khalsa.---------**************----------*******Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji visited Bargari on his way from Dina to Kot Kapura.A Gurdwara was established later on the site of the northern edge of the village where Guru Gobind Singh stopped.Bargari gained prominence in 1924 during the Jaito campaign when the first Shaheedi Jatha (or band of Sikh volunteers) from Amritsar, determined to reach Gurdwara Gangsar or meet a martyrs death, made its last overnight stop at this village.The villagers served the Jatha as well as the large crowd that had gathered around it during its long journey with great respect.Gurdwara Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Bargari, inside a walled compound entered through a gateway, preserves the old sanctum, a 5 metre square room, to which a 10 metre square hall has been added in recent years.
