Sri Guru Arjan Sahib Ji stayed at Sirhali Kalan, commonly pronounced Sarhali Kalan, for some time along with his family.
Gurdwara Sri Chaubacha Sahib stands inside the village where it commemorates the Guru's visit.
The Gurdwaras present building, which was constructed during the 1950's by Sikhs associated with Bhai Gurmukh Singh Sewavale, has a Chaubacha in the basement.
The Chaubacha, is a circular masonary trough used for storing water, gives the Gurdwara its name. The sanctum is a raised platform at the far end of the marble floored hall built over the Chaubacha Sahib. Above the sanctum is a domed room topped by a gilded pinnacle.
Guru ka Langar and residential accommodation are in the backyard of the one acre compound. The Gurdwara owns 25 acres of arable land and is administered by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a local committee.
