The village of Makorh Sahib is also known as Makorh and Makorar.

Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji came here while travelling to Assam.

Guru Tegh Bahadur stayed here for 2 days. On the first day, when a hindu gujar saw Guru Tegh Bahadur he brought milk as an offering for Guru Ji.

At the same time Bhai Gurditta, also brought milk for Guru Tegh Bahadur. Guru Tegh Bahadur accepted Bhai Gurditta's offering.

When the hindu gujar asked about his offering, Guru Tegh Bahadur told him that buffalos and cows were not his, they were stolen.

The gujar fell at Guru Tegh Bahadur's feet and begged forgiveness. The gujar said that the children in his family did not live long and requested help. Guru Tegh Bahadur blessed him and said that the family would start to grow from now onwards. Guru Ji also instructed the gujar and his family not to use tobacco.

According to the Sakhi Pothi, residents of Gaga, who had been rude to some of the Sikhs in the Guru's entourage in their village, but who, repentant of their misdemeanour, had been following Guru Ji to ask for a pardon, were at last forgiven here at the intervention of the sangat.

Gurdwara Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Makorh, also known as Gurdwara Patshahi Nauvin, located in the eastern outskirts of the village, was constructed in 1953 by Bhai Harchand Singh Jeji, who also made an endowment for its maintenance.

The possession of the Gurdwara was handed over to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee in 1971. Special divans take place on the first of every Bikrami month and on all major anniversaries on the Sikh calendar.
