Chak Ram Das is a village in the Gujranwala district. Located 20 km's east of Eminabad it lies on the Eminabad-Mianwali Bungalow road.
Gurdwara Sri Guru Arjan Sahib Chak Ram Das in the village of Chak Ram Das has now all but dissappeared.
Guru Arjan was greatly attracted to this place because of his love of Bhai Prana, a Sikh of the Guru.
A beautiful Gurdwara was built here in memory of Guru Sahib but because of the neglect of so called Sikh organizations, this Gurdwara Sahib has disintegrated.
There was once a chaubara in front of this place which the local people now call the 'Guru Da Mehal' (the Guru's Palace).
40 ghumaon of land were granted to the gurdwara by the Sikh rulers; no revenues are owed on the land which curently is in the custody of the Auqaf Department.
After the Partition the communal violence which erupted resulted in the local Sangat seeking the safety of the Indian part of Punjab. The Gurdwara without its Sikhs and their seva to tend to its upkeep slowly returned to the elements from which it had been lovingly assembled.
