Gurdwara Sri Gurusar Sahib Rupana is associated with Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji who came here after winning the Battle of Muktsar on 28th Baisakh/ 25th April 1706.

Guru Gobind Singh rested here for some time. While Guru Ji was resting, a wild crow kept flying about cawing. Guru Ji shot the crow with an arrow.

On being asked by his Singh's, Guru Ji explained that the wild crow was in fact an old headman of the village who had been cursed and turned into a crow because of his evil deeds.

Guru Ji said that he had come to this place to emancipate the crow. The gurdwara stands in the center of a low laying area, now vast perennail pond owing to water logging. To reach the Gurdwara, one has to go through a crossway built in 1970.

The ground floor of the Gurdwara building is closed because of dampness. The Gurpurabs of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji and Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji are celebrated with great fervour. A big fair is organized every year during 1st week of March.

A small one room structure was first established by the villagers. It has now been replaced with a big building. Kar sewa started in the year 1990 under the supervision of Baba Harbans Singh Ji of Delhi. The main building of the gurdwara was reconstructed under karsewa.
