Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji visited this place in 1706 while on his way from Talwandi Sabo to Sirsa and stopped here to rest for the night.

A Gurdwara commemorating the visit was later established, about 200 metres southwest of the village.

The Gurdwara was served by a line of udasi sadhus until the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee took over possession under the Sikh Gurdwaras Act of 1925.

The old Gurdwara has since been demolished and a more spacious building constructed by Nihangs of Budha Dal. The square high ceiling hall has a sanctum in the centre and a Bhora Sahib below.

The sanctum is topped by a lotus dome. Special congregations take place on every nomoon day. The Gurdwara is popularly known as Gurdwara Sri Jhanda Sahib.
