Guru Gobind Singh Ji coming from Bur Majra went straight to the garden in the outskirts of the town of Chamkaur Sahib on 6 December 1705. This garden belonged to Rai Jagat Singh, the local landlord. Guruji sent some of his disciples to request Rai Jagat Singh to let him take shelter in his haveli. Rai Jagat Singh, for fear of the rulers wrath, refused

But his younger brother, Rup Chand, asserting his right as a co-owner of the house allowed Guru Gobind Singh Ji to enter. Guru Gobind Singh Ji had been here before also when he was on his way to Kurukshetra in 1702. The building of the Gurudwara Sahib is very beautiful
