About Gurudwara Dukh Niwaran Sahib
Gurdwara Dukh Nivaran Sahib is situated in what used to be the village of Lehal, now part of Patiala city. The place was graced by the ninth sikh guru, Guru Teg Bahadur ji.
According to local tradition, supported by an old handwritten document preserved in the Gurdwara, one Bhag Ram, a jhivar of Lehal, waited upon Guru Tegh Bahadur during his sojourn at Saifabad (now Bahadurgarh), and made the request that he might be pleased to visit and bless his village so that its inhabitants could be rid of a serious and mysterious sickness which had been their bane for a long time.
On Basant Panchmi, people visit the gurudwara to pay their obeisance and take a dip in the holy water. It is belived that the person who takes a dip in the hold tank (sarovar) during basant panchmi is relieved of all ailments.
