Gurudwara Tahli Sahib,Rehsema Distt Sialkot
This is the third shrine of Guru Hargobind Ji in this village. When Guru Dev Ji reached this place, the marriage of daughter of a Gosai Sadhu was being solemnized. Guru Dev Ji went to his house at his supplications. The pond where he washed his feet was turned into a place of worship. Guru Ji presented the Sadhu one hundred rupees in a purse along with a sehli (local) cap. These three items were kept here as relics.
The shrine called Tahli Sahib is located at the eastern side of the village. Guru Sahib stayed here while on his way to Kashmir and during his stay he had tied his horse with a sheesham (siccoo) tree and thus it came to be called Tahli Sahib. The shrine looks like a house and some people live in it.
The village is now known as Salehpur. Its P.S. is Chaprar of tehsil and district Sialkot.
This darbar was built by the Sangat of Amritsar. A fair used to be held on 1st, 2nd and 3rd of Har. 3 ghumaon of land is endowed to the Gurdwara.
