Gurdwara Sri Suhela Ghora Sahib commemorates Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji's visit in 1635.

One of Guru Hargobind's favourite stallions, Jan Bhai, wounded in the Battle of Kartarpur, finally collapsed and passed away.

The Gurdwara established during the 20th century is wrongly named Gurdwara Sri Suhela Ghora Sahib.

According to Gurbilas Chevi Patshahi and Sri Gur Pratap Suraj Granth, Guru Hargobind's horse named Suhela Ghora was killed in an earlier Battle at Gurusar/ Mehraj.

The two horses, Jan Bhai and Suhela (originally named Dilbagh and Gulbagh, respectively), were being brought by a Sikh from Afghanistan for Guru Hargobind, when they were snatched on the way by the Governor of Lahore. Bhai Bidhi Chand, a Gursikh, recovered them one by one through strategem and brought them to Guru Hargobind.

There are now 2 Gurdwaras at what used to be the village of Paili Khurd. Gurdwara Sri Suhela Ghora Sahib of comprises a small room constructed in 1965, with a slightly bigger one added in 1982. Gurdwara Khooh Sahib, about 200 metres to the east of Gurdwara Sri Suhela Ghora Sahib, is close to an old well (khooh, in Punjabi) which was sunk by Guru Hargobind. The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, which administers both the Gurdwaras, had the present building, a single square room, constructed in 1984.
