History Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji came here on his way to Damdama Sahib after winning the battle of Muktsar. A yogi, Hukam Nath, stayed here with his followers. He had, through meditation, acquired some mystical powers. When Guru Ji came here, Hukam Nath tried to impress him with his mystical powers, but, none of his powers worked in front of Guru Ji. The ashamed yogi left the place with his followers without telling anyone and appreciated their prompt reaction. To test the alertness of his Sikhs, Guru Ji lowered his arrow saluted the grave of a Muslim Saint, Qasim Bhatti near by in the morning. His alert Sikhs immediately reacted to this prohibited act and asked Guruji to pay a fine of Rs. Twenty Five. The Guruji willingly accepted their punishment. It is believed that the amount received was utilized in preparation of Degh which was distributed among the sangat. In addition, it is also believed that Guru Ji halted near a group of three jand trees and after hanging his arms and belt on them, rested for some time. The birthdays of Guru Nanak Devji, Guru Arjun Dev Ji and Guru Gobind Singh Ji are celebrated with great fervour . Its 8 kms from Gidderbaha and 36 kms from Bhatinda.
