Ghuman is a village in Gurdaspur district of Punjab, India. A shrine there is dedicated to Namdev, a Bhakti saint, and is believed by the villagers to represent the place where he was cremated after his travels from Maharashtra.[1] The tradition, which also says that he spent the last 20 years of his life in that village, is not universally accepted.[2]
