Gurdwara Bhai Kanhaiya is in memory of Bhai Kanhaiya was a Sikh of Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji. Bhai Sahib was born in a Dhamman Khatri family of Sodhara near Wazirabad in Sialkot district (now in Pakistan).

His father was a wealthy trader, but he himself being of a religious bent of mind left home when still very young and roamed about with sadhus and ascetics in search of spiritual peace.

His quest ended as he met Guru Tegh Bahadur (1621-75) and accepted initiation at his hands. Kanhaiya established a dharamshalla at Kavha village in the present Attock district of Pakistan which he turned into a preaching centre.

His special mission was selfless service of humanity with no distinction of nationality, caste or creed. In 1704/5, he was on a visit to Anandpur when the city was invaded by a combination of hill troops and the imperial Mughal army.

Forward Bhai Kanhaiya - Sikhi produced Bhai Kanhaiya, more than 100 years before the inception of the Red Cross.
