History It is a world famous holy place as its the meditation spot of Baba Shri Chand ji, the eldest son of Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji and it is said that Tripta, the mother of Guru Nanak Dev ji , belonged to the village Barath. Also , Guru Amar Das ji, Guru Ram Das ji, Guru Arjan Dev ji and Guru Hargobind ji are said to have visited this place to pay their respects to Baba Sri Chand ji. Adjacent to the smadh of Baba Sri Chand ji in the Gurdwara is a pillar where Guru Arjan Dev ji is said to have waited for having a glimpse of Sri Chand when the latter was in meditation and is called “Thum Sahib”. Here Baba Shri Chand Ji established a sacred “Bauli Sahib” which he digged with his own hands. Shri Guru Arjun Dev Ji while going back from Barath Sahib during his visit took the holy “Amrit Kunj” from this Bauli for Shri Tarantaran Sahib ‘Sarovar’. This holy Amrit is very pious and beneficial for every human and get relieved from physical troubles. This Gurdwara comes under SGPC & on the occasion of “Amawas” every month a fair takes place.
