is at a very quite place and sorrounded by villages namely Raqba,
Dhatt, Pandori, Boparai Kalan and Mullanpur town. It is just 3 km away
from Mullanpur railway station.
Damdama Sahib is built in memory of Sixth Guru, Sri Hargobind Sahib Ji
who rested here for some time on his way from Ayaali Kalan via
Mullanpur Dakha. Here two ladies from Dakha brought Guru Ji milk and
did seva. Guru Ji was very impressed with their seva bhavvna and
blessed them and this holy place. Anybody who comes here with clear
thinking and full devotion gets blessed with whatever he thinks of.
management and seva of this historic gurdwara is in hands of Nihang
Singhs since the begining. Intially it was Baba Waryam Singh Ji Raqba,
who did seva at this place. Later Baba Karam Singh Ji and Baba Lehna
Singh Ji Dhatt performed great selfless seva here. Now Baba Joginder
Singh Ji, Boparai Kalan is taking care of this place very efficiently.
New building of this gurdwara was built in 1936 by Sant Ajaib Singh Ji,
