Gurdwara Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Himmatpura, also known as Gurdwara Malla Sahib, is dedicated to Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji. The village of Himmatpura was once known as Jusampura.
Guru Hargobind arrived at village Boli, which was said to be located about two kilometres away from Jusampura.
On hearing about Guru Hargobind's arrival, a large number of people gathered to receive blessings from Guru Ji and listen to his diwan.
Some of the Sangat were from Jusampura and they asked Guru Hargobind to bless their village by paying a visit there. Unfortunately, Guru Hargobind had other plans and told the villagers he would visit Jusampura when possible if future.
The Jusampura villagers returned home but interestingly one of the villagers managed to steal the saddle of Guru Ji's horse. When on the next day Guru Hargobind was told about the theft, Guru Ji visited Jusampura.
The villagers extended their whole hearted hospitality to Guru Hargobind and requested forgiveness for the saddle mischief by saying that the man who had taken the saddle was mad.
Guru Hargobind noticed that the saddle thief had returned the saddle back without one of its Pedas (gold ring) and expressed his unhappiness over the thief's behavior. However, Guru Hargobind blessed the villagers for their prosperity and also changed the name of the village from Jusampura to Himmatpura.
The tree that Guru Hargobind tied his horse with still exists in front of the Gurdwara. Prakash Divas of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji and Sri Guru Arjan Sahib Ji are the major events in which people from all over join the occassions. There are six rooms with limited facilities in the Gurdwara premises for Sikhs to stay in.
