It was the 8th Sikh guru Guru Har Krishan who stayed here in 1664 while he was at Delhi. There was cholera and small pox epidemic at that point of time & it was Guru Har Krishan who helped the sufferings of the people by providing help and fresh water from his house’s well. But very soon he too fell ill and finally died of the epidemic illness on the 30th of March 1664. The gurudwara and its Sarovar are highly revered by the Sikhs now. The gurudwara has been renovated in the year 1783.
Not only for the people of Sikh religion, people from all over India come to witness this place with a great deal of enthusiasm. One of the best aspects about this gurudwara is that remains open round the clock including weekends as well as national holidays. Moreover, there is no restriction on time in staying in the place either.
