Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji was staying in the nearby village of Nandpur.
Guru Tegh Bahadur was travelling from Anandpur to Assam with his family and 300 Sikhs. When the villagers of Railon heard that Guru Tegh Bahadur was staying at Nandpur, they invited Guru Ji to visit Railon also.
Guru Tegh Bahadur accepted the request and camped at the site of the Gurdwara. Guru Tegh Bahadur sat under a Bohar tree and washed his feet in the nearby pond.
The villagers informed Guru Tegh Bahadur that there was a serious disease in the village and even newly born babies were getting infected. Guru Tegh Bahadur said that those that bathe at the location of the pond would find themselves cured.
Bhai Bhagtu donated the surrounding land of Guru Tegh Bahadur's camp and had a Thara (platform) marking Guru Tegh Bahadur's visit constructed.
An old lady Mai Aso was not able to have children, she asked Guru Tegh Bahadur to bless her with a son and said she would have a place of worship built.
Guru Tegh Bahadur blessed her for a son and said that a dharamsala would get constructed with help of the village Sangat.
Guru Tegh Bahadur also gave a Pata with his own stamp on it. And said that whoever sees it would have his darshan (protection). Guru Tegh Bahadur stayed here for 2 days and returned to Nandpur.
