History The Dera Baba Gandha Singh of Barnala is linked with the history of Barnala. Once Bibi Pradhan Kaur ,daughter of Maharaja Ala Singh, reached Mukatsar journey then. She met Baba Langar Singh. Listening to sermon and seeing serving of meals without any break left deep impact over her mind. She requested Baba Langar Singh that a saint of high conduct like him be sent to Barnala who may start congregation and meal service like this there. Accepting her request, Baba Langar Singh deemed his learned disciple Pandit Nikka Singh worthy for Barnala. Maharaja Ala Singh had heard a lot very well about Baba Langar Singh and Pandit Nikka Singh and whenever he talked of appointing a talented teacher for Bibi, then name of Pandit Nikka Singh used to be mentioned in high esteem. Complying with orders of Baba Langar Singh, Pandit Nikka Singh reached Barnala then Maharaja Ala Singh provided him with a beautiful house for residence. Pandit ji started congregation here. In this way, Dera Baba Gandha Singh came into existence and in fort regular meal-services were arranged where hundreds of people took meals and even today hearths of Baba Ala Singh present and Gurudwara is famous with the name of Baba Chulle (Hearths).
