Gurdwara Sri Chaumala Sahib is located in Chowmala Mohalla inside Bhati Gate.

Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji stayed here in the house of Bhai Jivan. Guru Hargobind held a number of diwan's (congregations) and provided knowledge to the Sikhs in attendance. Bhai Biddi Chand Ji also stayed here when he came to take back the horses of Guru Ji.

Bhai Jivan converted his house into a Gurdwara. Its initial charge was with the mahants. In 1915 the hall of the Gurdwara was enlarged. Sikh Sangats took over the control from Mahant Hari Singh 1921 AD.

Initially a local committee was constituted then it passed onto the control of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee from 1927 to 1947 AD. The Auqaf Department has the control of this palce now.

Prakash of Guru Granth Sahib used to take place. There were a large number of rooms for Sikhs to stay. A house in Bhati gate and 87 ghumaon of land in Khudpur village of Tehsil Lahore is attached to the Gurdwara. A fair used to be held on Basant Panchami.

This Gurdwara has been completely wiped out and is now lost to Sikhs. Muslims have constructed three storey buildings over the site of the Gurdwara and a page of history has been destroyed by selfish people.
