History Mahatma Bhagat Jetamal was living there. Once Guru Nanak Dev Ji visited this place, Bhagat Jetamal Ji was 350 years old. Bhagat Jetamal Ji requested Guru Ji to get freedom(mukti) from this world. Gurunank Dev Ji said Bhagat Ji you have to live and enjoy the world for more time. Again I would come in the appearance (form) of Guru Teg Bahadur Ji and would make you free from the world. Till then you just worship and I would request Ganga Ji to give you bath at your place daily. Bhagat Ji said if Ganga Ji would come at my place to give me bath daily then the villagers would fall in trouble, why should villagers suffer because of me. Moreover when you would come in the appearance (form) of Guru Teg Bahadur Ji then how would I know that it is you? Guru Nanak Dev Ji asked him to make a Kund (pond) there to take the bath and said Ganga Ji would give you bath there in the appearance (form) of Gau (Cow). This way villagers would not be facing any difficulty. Ganga ji kept on giving bath to Bhagat Ji in the appearance (form) of Cow. Then he continued worshiping and kept on waiting for his freedom. Giving commandments to Bhagat Ji, Guru Nanak Dev Ji left for the Patna Saheb. In Patna Guru Nanak Dev Ji met Salas Rai Johri, then Salas Rai Johri also became his follower and converted his house to a Dharamshala where Guru Gobind Singh was born. Place where cow came to bath Bhagat Jaitmal Guru Teg Bahadur Ji with his family and some selected followers started journey towards east. Guru Teg Bahadur Ji with his family and sangat reached Bhagat Jetatmal Jiís village Bishambarpur and called him & knocked his door. But all the doors of his house were closed because neighboring children and young were making a noise at his home which placed hindrance in his worship. One window of that house was open from where Sanagt called Bhagat Ji Maharaj, Guru Ji has arrived, please open the door. Bhagat Ji replied if Guru Ji has arrived then he can come in without opening the door. Hearing that Guru Ji with his family and Sangat ride on the horse and went inside through the open window in incredible way. He tied his horse with the rope and seated on the Guru Nanak Dev Jiís place. Bhagat Jetamal Ji saw Guru Nanak Dev Ji in the form of Guru Teg Bahadur Ji. Seeing him Bhagat Jetamal Ji got freedom from mortal world according to the spritual words of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
