Gurdwara Sri Baba Gurditta Chandpur Rurki is known for its association with Baba Gurditta, the son of Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji.
Baba Gurditta (15th November 1613 - 15th March 1638), was the eldest son of the sixth Sikh Guru, Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji and Mata Damodari.
Born at Daroli Bhai in Punjab he was also an elder brother of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji, the ninth Sikh Guru.
Baba Gurditta and his wife Mata Nihal Kaur were the parents of Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji and Dhir Mall. He had his training in religious lore and martial arts under the supervision of his father, the son of Guru Arjan Sahib Ji.
Baba Gurditta visited Chandpur Rurki with two associates, Baba Jodh and Baba Kesra.
The Gurdwara blesses visitors with the following phrase, 'Dhan-Dhan Baba Gurditta Ji, Deen Duni Da Tikka Ji, Jo Var Mangiya Ji, So Var Ditta Ji'.
