History Guru Gobind Singh ji were on His way from Machhiwara, Raikot, Lamma, Mukatsar , he passed through this village and Guruji is said to have spent some time with Rai Kalha at the place and played chess with him. Guru Gobind Singhji requested Rai Khala to send a messenger to Sirhind to find out about the whereabouts of his family which had been separated from him during their crossing of the river Sarsa. Rai Kalha reported the tragic story of the execution and martyrdom of the Guruji's two younger sons and how his mother Mata Gujri had also passed away.
