According to local tradition, Gurdwara Sri Damdama Sahib Thatta was visited by Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji and some guests that were on their way to the Gurus marriage.
Guru Nanak was travelling from Sultanpur Lodhi to Batala in 1487 and made his first stop here.
The Gurdwaras name 'Damdama' means a resting place. Baba Bir Singh of Naurarigabad (d. 1844) is said to have served the Gurdwara for some time.
The construction of the present complex was started by Bhai Kartar Singh of Goindval in 1958 when a mosaic floored square hall, was added to the older building raised in 1919. A new three storeyed domed building and residential block were completed by 1984.
The Gurdwara is managed by Bhai Kartar Singh. Besides the daily services and the observance of major Sikh anniversaries, a religious fair is held on 27th Baisakh (May) every year.
