This Gurdwara is situated at a distance of 10 Km from Mansa City on Mansa-Bathinda Road in Village Bhaini Bangar.

Bhaini Bagha, an old village 10 km northeast of the district town of Mansa, has a historic Gurdwara, also known as Gurdwara Rakabsar Patshahi Nauvin.

It is said that as Guru Tegh Bahadur was proceeding on horseback from Khiala towards Dikkh, a strap of the saddle stirrup, rakabin in Punjabi, broke.

Guru Tegh Bahadur stopped at Bhaini Bagha to get the stirrup mended by the village cobbler.

A memorial in the shape of a platform was raised to mark the spot where Guru Tegh Bahadur had alighted and sat. Later, a room was built by the side of the platform and the Guru Granth Sahib installed in it.

The present building, constructed in the 1970's, replaced both. Standing in a corner of a 2 acre enclosure, it comprises a domed sanctum inside a square hall. The Gurdwara owns seven acres of land. The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee has acquired the legal right to administer it, but the village Sangat continues to manage it through a five member committee.
