“A Place of modern engineering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

The place has famous Gurudwara where thousand of Sikhs visit every year to receive the blessing of Baba Bharbhag Singh, who was a saint and established this Gurudwara which was earlier known as Dera. It is about 40 Kms. from Una Town and one can reach this place by bus directly or by train upto Una or by air upto Chandigarh.

The Gurudwara is situated on the top of the hill and is surrounded by Ecyluptus trees. The Gurudwara Sarai apart from PWD Rest House is available for the night stay. A famous fair also known as Baba Bhar Bhag Singh Mela is held here in the month of February in honour of Barbhag Singh ji who was reowned for his magical powers. This fair is held at the time of holi and is famous for the treatment of mental problems and is unique fair of its kind in the country. A large number of visitors suffering from mental problems come to this fair and are treated at the gurudwara by the priest called 'Masands'.
Dera Baba Gurbarbhag Singh in village Mairi of Amb Tehsil, is 3 kms. north-east of village Nehri which situated on Una-Amb-Nadaun-Hamirpur road is almost 40 kms. from Una. A visit to the ‘dera’(the holy shrine) is believed to cure patients possessed by evil spirits or affected with other malign influences.
Click To EnlargeBaba Gurbarbhag Singh, the son of Baba Ram Singh and Mata Raj Kaur, and a descendant of Dhir Mal, the first cousin of ‘Dasam Padshahi’ Guru Gobind Singh, was born at Kartarpur in 1715 A.D. He succeeded to the hereditary gaddi (religious seat) of Sodhis of Kartarpur. Many stories are narrated about him. One of them says that once during his childhood Gurbarbhag Singh was playing with his playmates. Commenting upon his disheveled hair, one of the playmates remarked that he looked like a ‘bhoot’(ghost). On this, Shradhanand, an astrologer and palmist of repute who was perchance there remarked that Barbhag Singh as he was then called, was not a bhoot but would be ‘guru’(perception) of bhoots.

“A wonder of modern engineering.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

A very long winding mountain route, no real amenities nearby, toilet facilities are poor, but my God the photo ops are bril! Many people dealing with ethereal possessions come here, but that aside, this place is a modern wonder, seeing how high and isolated a place this is and the level of building and construction that has taken place here. Baba Wadbhaag Singh Ji defeated the King of the demons here, hence the belief in his power to rid people of ghostly possessions. A side of India you would not want to miss, I was glad I went.

“Charan Ganga”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

every thing is very good about Baba Badhbhag Singh but Charan Ganga is a place you like more because it is situated in a very good place near river is falling and also a very good view of the sight.
