Gurudwara Charan Kanwal, Machiwara

Dec 1705....... Guru Gobind Singh ji on orders from the 'Panj Piaras' left Chamkaur Sahib alone and traversed through thick inhospitable jungles of Machiwara. Badly wounded, tattered clothes, bleeding all over he rested at this place (from the poem 'Machiwarey de janglan vich' which I read in class 7, which left an indelible imprint on my mind).
He quenched his thirst from the well and rested under the 'jand' tree and was joined by his three devout followers including two of the five 'piaras'.
Later he escaped from this place with the help of his two muslim followers and a Qazi who described him as 'Ucchh daa peer'

Machiwara is a small town in rural settings, located in Ludhiana district.

Those who visit to Paonta Sahib, Himachal Pradesh can visit many more Gurdwaras near by within 15km.

Paonta Sahib have only road access.
It is at base of Hills.
Public Transport
Bus:
You can get Bus from Chandigarh, Delhi,, Haridwar, Dehradoon, Yamuna Nagar etc.
Yamuna Nagar is in Haryana.
This is nearest place and if you miss a bus from Delhi etc (south of it),
You can always get bus from Yamuna Nagar in Day Time.
Better move to Yamuna Nagar (Interior of Haryana), via Karnal (NH1) from Delhi.

If coming from North, Move to Chandigarh for best service or to Ambala.
Ambala also has bus service to Nahan.
Nahan is nearest place in north of Paonta Sahib.

This point is important as You have to take buses which go from Paonta Sahib to Taru-Bhaila villages.
Taru
Bhaila
Taru and Bhaila are separate villages, where Bus goes from Paonta Sahib
Private and Govt. both operate on these routes.
HPSTC bus Service
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Bhailla,+Village+-+Bhailla,+Bhailla,+Himachal+Pradesh+173025,+India/@30.540384,77.7667822,2684m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x390f3058926a1abd:0x1a0dd7ea2e513cdf

But going by bus is not practical for Shergarh Sahib only as it is few km to walk.
Other two Gurdwaras at Village Bhangani are easy to cover by bus in daytime only.
