Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji visited Nowshera between 1616-1620 AD when he was on the way to Kashmir along with the caravan of emperor Jahangir.
As per the inscription on Gurdwara Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Nowshera, Guru Hargobind entered Rajouri district in the year 1616 AD. Firstly, Guru Ji reached Jhangar and stayed in a house of a brahman namely Jhangir Das. (Later on, the name of the area also became Jhangar).
At Jhangar, Guru Ji also met Bawa Beeram Shah Dutt and after detailed discussions with Bawa Beeram Shah regarding the religious matters, Guru Ji selected him for preaching of Sikhi in the foothills of Panchal range starting from Poonch to Dharmasal in Kalakote and posted him at Jhangar.
Guru Ji then came to Nowshera along with the mughal emperor Jahangir. The emperor's darbar was set up in Nowshera fort while Guru Ji preferred to stay with the people living opposite Nowshera fort. This is where Gurdwara Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Nowshera is located.
Beeram propagated Guru Ji's mission in the hills of Mirpur. Guru Sahib gifted some belongings to Beeram. Later Beeram settled near Kani village.
