History Guru Nanak Dev ji spent 14 years in this town where he worked for the Nawab Daulat Khan Lodhi and attained enlightenment during a prolonged dip in the waters of the holy Bein that flows past the town. At this spot Guru Nanak Dev ji would go bathing early in the mornings in the Bein river before meditation. While bathing here one day Guru Nanak Dev ji disappeared in the stream and was missing for three days where he was in communion with God. Upon returning the enlightened Guru Nanak Dev ji began his lifelong mission of preaching Sikhism. Guru Nanak Dev ji had planted a Ber (jujube) tree seedling on this spot which has today grown into a large tree.
