Sarai - unknown

Gurdwara Sri Kaimba Sahib is situated in village Dhalian, Tehsil Raikot, in the Ludhiana district.

Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji arrived here with 3,000 Sikh horsemen.

Guru Hargobind travelled here after the 1631 Battle of Gurusar at Mehraj.

Guru Hargobind stayed here for 25 days holding diwans for the Sangat from the local villages and helping those in need.

While staying here Guru Hargobind helped the poor people from village Bhaini Derera. The muslims from the nearby village of Andlu were discriminating against the villagers of Bhaini and not letting them settle and live in peace.

The muslims were treating them as Kaffir. Kaffir is an arabic term used by muslims to describe a subset of society who have read and rejected the message of the Quran.

Guru Hargobind made the muslims understand that humanity is one. Many of the open minded and brave muslims (who used to be hindus) became Sikhs.

At the back of the Gurdwara is a sarovar surrounded by Kaimba trees. Guru Hargobind and his Sikhs would tie their horses to the Kaimba trees.

The trees are an intellectual curiosity as they appear from the ground at random places without explanation. Many horticulturist's have travelled here to study the trees and try and understand their behaviour and propagation.
