Guru Nanak Sahib Ji visited this place in 1504. At that time a dense forest existed here. Guru Ji blessed the followers and said that one day a city would prosper here. Guru Ji had come here from Nanakiana Sahib, village Mangwal.

Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji visited this place in 1616. Some sadhus had burnt a pippal tree at Nanak Matta which belonged to Guru Nanak Sahib Ji. So Alamsat, a follower of Baba Gurditta Ji (the eldest son of Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji), requested Guru Ji to visit Nanak Matta.

Guru Hargobind, while on his way from Amritsar to Nanak Matta, stayed at this place due to strong devotion of Manak Chand Ji. People served Guru Hargobind with love and devotion.

The karir tree with which Guru Hargobind had tied his horse still exists here.

Guru Hargobind blessed this place with milk and sons.

Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji visited this place in 1665 along with his Mother, Mata Nanaki Ji, his wife, Mata Gujri Ji, his Maternal Uncle Kirpal Chand Ji, a few Sikhs and Rababi group of Bhai Nathu Ram Ji, while on his way from Anandpur Sahib to Assam. A journey of 3 years.

Guru Tegh Bahadur came via Villages Aalo-Aarkh, Bhawanigarh, Gharachon, Mangwal and Nanakiana. Guru Ji arranged Kirtan Darbar here.
