Gurdwara Sri Reru Sahib Nandpur is situated on the main GT Road between the villages of Nandpur and Sahnewal.
Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji came here while traveling from Machiwara to Alamgir with Gani Khan, Nabi Khan, Bhai Dharam Singh, Bhai Daya Singh and Bhai Maan Singh.
Guru Gobind Singh was disguised as 'Uch Da Peer' to avoid the pursuing mughals and stayed here for the night under a Reru (Mimosa leucophloea) tree.
The next day, Guru Gobind Singh brushed his teeth using a twig from the Reru tree, The local Sangat arrived and provided food and water.
Guru Gobind Singh was very pleased and blessed the villagers and said that this place reminded him of Anandpur.
The Sangat wanted a momento from Guru Sahib, so he dug the datan (toothbursh) he had into the ground and said a Reru tree would always be here.
The tree still exists, hence the name of the Gurdwara.
From here, Guru Gobind Singh travelled to Tibba village before arriving in Alamgir and discarding his disguise.
