This holy place is situated at a distance of 37 miles from Lahore on the Lahore-Lyallpur Railway Line. Guru Nanak was sent by Mehta Kalu with a sum of Rs. 20 /- to teach him to know-how the business. On the way to his destination, the Guru happened to meet certain sadhus who seemed to be hungry. The Guru responded well to the occassion and got prepared a langar for the Sadhus. Mehta Kalu felt annoyed. Where Guru Nanak Ji fed the sadhus, now stands a magnificent Gurdwara that was built by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, on the pattern of fortress. The building of the Gurdwara is very beautiful. The very impression of the Darshani Deorhi attracts the congregations. In the begining, the service of the Gurdwara was in the hands of Udhasis. The management came under the Panthic administration after the Gurdwara Reform Movement. After the partition of the country; the Gurdwara remain closed for the congregations, but on the occassion of the Baisakhi in April 1993, the sangats were allowed to pay homage to the Gurdwara.
