Ghulal is a village located in the Ludhiana district of the State of Punjab.
There are 2 Historic Sikh Gurdwaras at Ghulal.
Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji visited the site of this Gurdwara, located on the outskirts of Ghulal, after 1631 Battle of Gurusar while travelling to Kiratpur.
At the time there was a troublesome lion that local villagers were afraid of. It is said that Guru Hargobind liberated the lion.
On 17th April 1965 Kartar Singh who owned the surrounding land was ploughing his fields when he found the markings of the Manji Sahib.
As a result, the Gurdwara Sahib was established.
On Puranmashi each month a Jhor mela is held by the local Sangat.
Gurdwara Sri Shastar Bhet Sahib marks the site where Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji arrived disguised as 'Uch Da Pir' carried on a Manji by Bhai Gani Khan and Bhai Nabi Khan. Guru Gobind Singh had come from Machhiwara after escaping from the mughal's at Chamkaur.
Bhai Jhanda was a Sikh of Guru Gobind Singh and lived Ghulal village. Bhai Jhanda would often send finely made teers (arrows) to Guru Gobind Singh. When Guru Gobind Singh came to Ghulal, Bhai Jhanda presented Guru Sahib with 1 kamaan (bow), 2 kirpans (swords) and 22 teers (arrows).
Bhai Jhanda served Guru Gobind Singh with great respect and devotion. Guru Gobind Singh asked Bhai Jhanda to ensure regular simran of 'Satnam Waheguru' was carried out and then continued his journey towards Alamgir via the local villages in between.
On Sangrand each month a Jhor mela is held by the local Sangat.
