This Gurdwara is situated at a distance of 19 Km from Mansa on Mansa-Barnala Road in Village Ali Sher Kalan.

When Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji visited nearby village Pandher, the villagers did not pay due respect to Guru Ji. Guru Tegh Bahadur left the village Pandher and arrived here at village Ali Sher Kalan.

The villagers of Pandher soon realized their mistake and travelled to village Ali Sher Kalan to ask for forgiveness. They brought Gur (Jaggery) and some money with them. On the way the villagers met a person who was returning after paying homage to Guru Ji.

They asked the man, "What should we offer to Guru Tegh Bahadur to seek forgiveness?" The man replied, "Nothing, Guru Tegh Bahadur is compassionate and does not look at the faults of others." The villagers of Pandher distributed the offerings among themselves and went empty handed to Guru Ji.

The villagers asked for forgiveness and Guru Tegh Bahadur, unmindful of their past conduct, instructed them to follow the path of virtuous living. The villagers realized their mistake and returned to their village and constructed a Gurdwara at the place where Guru Tegh Bahadur first stopped.
