Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji arrived in Rajo Majra from village Jahangir.

The name of the village used to be Mai Rajo Rangari as the village used to belong to Ranghars. The village was gifted by the Nawab of Malerkotla.

The villagers would regularly use tobacco and eat meat. When Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji arrived just outside the village, the villagers approached Guru Ji and kindly explained the village was not a pure place.

Guru Tegh Bahadur camped on the outskirts of the village where Gurdwara Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Rajo Majra is located.

During the following morning, Sikhs collecting water for Guru Tegh Bahadur's morning bath could not find any. Guru Tegh Bahadur directed his Sikhs toward a nearby dried pond, which started to provide water.

Guru Ji explained that the water here would not dry out in future. This pond is now marked by the Gurdwara sarovar.
