The “barat†comprises The Beloved Five and thousands of devotees. Langars are organised on roadsides for devotees. At Batala, the “barat†first reached Gurdwara Dera Sahib and then Gurdwara Kandh Sahib.

Guru Nanak was married to Bibi Sulakhni, daughter of Mul Chand Chauna. The district administration today declared holiday in the town for letting the devotees to participate in the ceremonies.

It is hoped that a Bibi Sulakhni memorial gate will be set up at Umarpura village and the road leading to Gurdwara Kandh Sahib be named after Bibi Sulakhni.
