BILASPUR, a small town 16 km fromJagadhri (30°10'N, 77°18'E) in Ambala district of Haryana, is close to Kapal Mochan, a wellknown place of Hindu pilgrimage. Guru Gobind Singh is said to have sojourned at Kapal Mochan for 52 days in 1688. During this period, he made a brief visit to Bilaspur. A small shrine now honours his memory. It is a single 12cornered domed room, inside a quadrangle enclosed by a low wall. The shrine is administered by the Shiromam Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a local committee.
