Gurdwar Manji Sahib Patshahi IX is another shrine dedicated to Guru Tegh Bahadur . About 100 metres to the west of Darbar Sahib, it marks the spot where he used to sit supervising the digging of the tank, Gurusar. Guru Gobind Singh also sanctified the site by a visit during his stay at Talvandi Sabo. The present building, constructed by the Sant Sevak Jatha, Bunga Mastuana, is a marble-floored hall with a circular tower topped by a domed pavilion at each corner. The Guru Granth Sahib is seated on a canopied seat of white marble, tastefully carved, in a square sanctum marked off by marble-lined pillars. Above the sanctum are two storeys of square rooms overtopped by a lotus dome. The gold-plated pinnacle has an umbrella-shaped firiial with a khanda on top.
