Khu Baba Farid at Chak#317 EB Burewala, Distt Vehari
This well is in a locality half a kilometer from the shrine of Haji Sher Chawli Mashaekh which is situated in Chak No 317/EB of tehsil Burewala of District Vehari. There is a high boundary around the well and there is a beautiful darbar of Sat Gur Nanak Dev Ji in front of the gate in boundary wall.
The well is called Khoi Baba Farid. It is said that Baba Farid meditated for twelve years hanging by a Kacchi tand (raw -yarn) in this well and achieved Bhakti. The well is still in use and water is cool and tasty.
People drink water from this well in order to get relief from various physical and spiritual diseases. This historical well has been running for centuries and will continue running eternally. Earlier there was no roof over it. In 1997 its mud-boundary wall was built in brick and a circular supported by round pillars was erected. A veranda has been constructed for the devotees.
