Puranic Significance

Guru Nanak Ji had arrived in this village from Alpa. He relieved a money lender from his suffering and created this Shabd, Branded with a thousand marks of disgrace, Indra cried in shame. Paras Raam returned home crying. Ajai cried and wept; when he was made to eat the manure he had given, pretending it was charity. (Shalok, First Mehl.) Initially the shrine was built simply but on 31st March 1935 AD the construction of a new building was started and the foundation stone was laid by the following Punj Pyare (Five Dear ones). 1. Sardar Sant Naranjan Singh Ji of Ajitsar. 2. Bhai Sangat Singh Ji of Sangrana Sahib. 3. Bhai Pardhan Singh Ji Ragi of Faroka District Sargodah. 4. Bhai Ram Singh Ji of Montgomery (Sahiwal). 5. Bhai Labh Singh Ji Granthi of Renala Khurd. The construction was stopped and it remained at the stage reached (in 1947). In the past a big Visakhi fair used to be celebrated but this tradition has now been discontinued.
