This holy place is about 25 km from the Lahore city and 2-3 km from the Pakistan-Indian border.

The sacred Gurdwara of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji is located about half a kilometer outside the village.

The place where Guru Nanak stayed came to be known as Rori Sahib. Guru Nanak came to this place thrice because the maternal grand parents of Guru Nanak were settled in the nearby village called Dera Chahal.

There was a small pool at that time which was later expanded into a sarovar by a Sikh of Guru Nanak, Bhai Naria, a dweller of this village. It was through his preaching and devotion that a large number of Bhabray were converted to Sikhism.

The construction of the Gurdwara was started by Bhai Wadhawa Singh and a beautiful Darhar was built. Fairs used to be held on Visakhi and 20th of Jeth.

There is an endowment of 100 Bighas of land in the name of Gurdwara. The sarovar has once again depleted into a small pool. The dome of Gurdwara Sri Rori Sahib Jahman is in need of urgent repairs. If there are no repairs are carried within a short time the Gurdwara might collapse.
