Ghakka and Kotli are twin villages situated in Police Station Shah Gharib of Tehsil Shakkargarh.

Gurdwara Sri Tahli Sahib Ghakka Kotli, the Gurdwara of Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji, is in the village Ghakka. It is a beautiful and spacious Gurdwara which is now falling apart.

Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji sat beside a Tahli (Shisham tree) here under the shade of the Ber tree. The Tahli has withered away but the Ber tree is still there.

It was here that Guru Ji blessed a man and released him (gave mukti) from rebirth as a rabbit. His samadh is in the village 'Boa'.

Guru Ji stayed for a few days by this shisham and under the shadow of the bair tree in recognition of the love expressed by Bhai Fateh Chand Premi.

This holy Gurdwara is a memorial of his love and affection. Land measuring 50 bighas and an estate worth rupees one hundred er annum is assigned to the Gurdwara.

A fair used to be held on Vaisakhi. This Gurdwara can be reached by road after getting off at Bagh or Bostan bus stop on Narowal-Shakkargarh road. A mettled road leads to the village. The Gurdwara is on the road before the village. Anwar Khan, a muslim refugee from Gurdaspur has settled in Gurdwara. The building is in a very bad shape.
