Gurdwara Baba Lakho is a Shrine situated in village Bharta Ganeshpur (in district Hoshiarpur of Punjab). Baba Lakho Ji was a Jogi and was shshgird of Gurughar too. A shrine called Gurdwara Thada Sahib is also situated on one side of of Gurdwara Baba Lakho where Guru Hargobind ji met Baba lakho.

In the shrine called Gurdwara Baba Lakho there is a Samadhi (a Memorial) to Baba Lakho and his three disciples. In the shrine the Parkash of Guru Granth Sahib is also done in Gurdwara sahib. Baba Lakho ji left for his heavnly abode at this place.

Guru Hargobind ji came here on the request of Bhai Lakho Ji who was a disciple of Guru Sahib. A few kilometers away in Village PanchNangal there was a man named Kalu who was constructing a replica of Shri Harmandar Sahib and its Sarovar. Kalu was attempting to get the local people to believe that visiting his replica would gain the same benefits as they would get by visiting the Shri Harmandar Sahib at Amritsar.

From Bharta Ganeshpur Guru Hargobind ji sent him a message to come and meet with him, but he refused to come. After that Singhs tied Kalu up and brought him before Guru Sahib. Bhai Lakho ji asked Guru Hargobind ji to release him, which the Guru did.

But Kalu didn't agreed and kept on building his replica. Guru Hargobind ji said, that Kalu's place will not gain the status of Shri Harmandar Sahib.

The replica in village panchnangal still exists there but nobody visits there.
