Makhdoom Pur Pahuran a well known town on the Multan-Delhi road built by Sher Shah Suri. The, town of Tulamba is at very short distance from Makhdoom Pur Pahuran.
Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji set out from Pakpattan and reached a place near Tulamba where Sajjan and Gajjan (uncle and nephew) had set up a trap in the form of a caravan inn. They used to rob and kill the travellers. They made an attempt to trap Guru Nanak and Bhai Mardana but failed. Guru Nanak created the following Shabad here;
Bronze is bright and shiny, but when it is rubbed, its blackness appears. Washing it, its impurity is not removed, even if it is washed a hundred times.
Hearing this Shabad Sajjan Thug, a cut throat, became a friend of Guru. Sajjan's inn was converted into a Gurdwara to commemorate this event. This place is beautifully built. Its boundary runs around in area of two ghumaon with Gurasthan at its centre.
A Sajjan by name, a Thug by profession, Guru Nanak met Sajjan Thug.
There used to be a big sarovar west of the Gurdwara which has now been levelled. Rooms for the stay of Sangat have been built along the boundary wall. There are green trees, flowery creepers, rose, jasmine and other plants whose flowers blossom all around. At present, a Pakistan Government Higher Secondary School is housed in the Gurdwara.
