In 1601 AD, when it failed to rain the jatt farmers in Khadoor approached Sri Guru Angad Sahib Ji, who was also in Khadoor. The farmers pleaded with Guru Ji to bring rain to the area as the seasonal rains had failed and their was a drought. Guru Ji asked them to accept the will of the Almighty.

A hindu yogi named Tapa, also known as Shiv Nath, at Khadoor tried to discredit Guru Ji and wanted to replace him. Tapa told the jatts to ask Guru Angad Sahib Ji to bring rain or leave Khadoor. Guru Angad said that if, by leaving Khadoor, rain would fall then he would leave.

Guru Angad Sahib Ji left Khadoor and arrived in Tur at the site Gurdwara Sri Guru Angad Sahib Tur. After stopping to rest Guru Angad travelled to Chapri to the site of Gurdwara Sri Chapri Sahib. The rains failed to return so Bhai Amar Das, the future Guru Amar Das, accompanied the Sangat from Khadoor and pleaded with Guru Angad Sahib Ji to return. The Sangat felt sorry for their foolishness and asked for forgivness.

Guru Angad said that the rain would fall wherever Tapa went. The farmers went to see Tapa and saw that it was raining in a small area around him. The farmers needing rain wanted Tapa to visit their fields. They started pulling him in different directions until he was torn to pieces.

It is said that Sri Guru Arjan Sahib Ji also visited this location.

Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji had a well built here, known as Ath Gutha Khuh. Guru Sahib blessed this place and said any person who is suffering from athrah disease would be cured if they bathe here for 8 Sundays with a pure heart.

Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji and Makhan Shah Labana also visited here while spreading the message of Sikhism.
