Har Raipur, a village 19 km north of Bathinda (30°14'N, 74°59'E), is sacred to Guru Har Rai, who once stopped here during his travels across the Malva region. The old name of the village, still current in popular usage, was Bhokhn. It was changed during the late 1960's to Har Raipur in honour of Guru Har Rai.

Guru Gobind Singh is also said to have visited Bhokhn. The present building of Gurdwara Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib, 400 metres to the northwest of the village, was constructed in 1928. It consists of a hall, in front of the domed sanctum, half octagonal in shape. Guru ka Larigar and residential rooms are in an adjacent compound. A sarovar and a pavilion for larger gatherings have been added in recent years. The Gurdwara is under the control of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, but the land attached to it is still in the possession of the former mahant.
