This Gurdwara is also known as Gurdwara Charan Pak Patshahi Pehli and is situated at a distance of 17 km west of Abohar City, 30 km from District Ganganagar and 9 km from Panj Kosi railway Station on Abohar - Ganganagar Road in Village Haripura.

Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji visited this location during one of his first udasi (preaching tours). Guru Ji was accompanied by Bhai Mardana.

When Guru Ji reached this village, the people of the village told Guru Sahib that they were being terrorized by a demon.

Guru Ji blessed the villagers and asked them not to worry. The demon came to the village, while Guru Ji was present. He bowed before Guru Ji and requested for liberation from cycle of birth and death. Guru Ji blessed him and told him that to attain liberation you should serve the people and respect their place of worship.

From that day, the demon never disturbed the people of the village. In the north of the village was a deep pool of water which was an ancient place of pilgrimage known as Bad Tirath, hence the name of the Gurdwara.

Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji visited this place after winning the battle of 'Khidrane Di Dhab', while on his way to Nanded. He blessed this place with five arrows.
