After spending about 30-45 in the village, you will be driven to Tarn Taran city where you will visit Gurdwara Sri Tarn Taran Sahib.

Tarn Taran Temple is one of the oldest gurudwara in the region, and houses a large Sarovar (pond) inside the complex, believed to be the largest among all the Sikh shrines.
