RAMPUR village about 3 km from Doraha (30°42'N. 76"1'E) in Ludhiana district, has a historical shrine called Gurdwara Reru Sahib. Guru Gobind Singh, while travelling from Machhivara into the interior of Malva country, is believed to have stayed here briefly under a reru (Mimosa leucophloea} tree. Hence the name of the Gurdwara. The present building complex, constructed under the supervision of Sant Bhagvan Singh (d. 1975), comprises a large hall in the centre, and rows of rooms for pilgrims around it on three sides. The fourth side has a spacious paved courtyard. The sanctum is at the western end of the hall. Above the hall there is a large lotus dome over the sanctum, with smaller domes at the corners. All domes have gilded pinnacles. The Gurdwara is administered by sant successors of Baba Bhagvan Singh.
