Babeli is also referred to locally as Dug Babeli because of its proximity to another village called Duggan.

Gurdwara Sri Chaunta Sahib Babeli commemorates the visit of Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji who visited here during one of his journeys between Kartarpur and Kiratpur.

The Gurdwara is located near the confluence of two seasonal streams to the northwest of the village and marks the site where Guru Har Rai stopped to rest and sat on a platform of earth works (Chaunta in Punjabi).

The Gurdwara building, constructed during recent years, comprises a large hall with a square sanctum in the middle. The Gurdwara is affiliated to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, but is administered by Bhai Harbans Singh of Domeli, who raised the present building.

Gurdwara Sri Babbar Shaheed

Babeli is also known for courageuos Sikhs who defied the British.

200 meters to the east of Babeli stands Gurdwara Sri Babbar Shaheed which remembers four Babbar Akalis who fell fighting the British in a prolonged encounter on 31st August 1923. Although the British masters were replaced by hindu's in Delhi, the courage of the Babbar Akalis lives on and reminds Sikhs of their responsibilities.
