LITTAR, village in Ludhiana district, 8 km northeast of Raikot (30°39'N, 75°37'E), has a historical shrine, Gurdwara ManjT Sahib Chheviri Patshahi. The Gurdwara was established in memory of Guru Hargobind, who is said to have stayed here briefly under a kanr tree during his sojourn in the Malva area in 163132. For this reason it is also known locally as Gurdwara Karir Sahib. It was served by a line of Udasi priests from among whom Sant Narain Das is still remembered with respect. The shrine is now managed by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee. The present building is a flatroofed rectangular hall with a vcrandah on three sides constructed in 1972.
