Guru Nanak Dev is said to have held religious courses with a Muslim reclause Lakkad Shah at this spot called Maal Tilla or Chakri Maal. Lakkad Shah's grave is half a furlong away from the present Gurudwara. It is also said that Guru Gobind Singh discovered a hidden treasure here. It was taken to the site of the present Gurudwara Sangat Sahib in the town where the Guru distributed a part of it among his warriors and got the rest of it buried here again.

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
