This Gurdwara is situated at a distance of 3 km from Alamgir village outside the village of Dulay.

The Gurdwara is located in a beautiful area surrounded by trees.

In 1705, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji and a few Sikhs arrived here after travelling from Chamkaur, Machhiwara and Alamgir.

At Alamgir, Guru Gobind Singh received a horse which was presented to him by one of the horse traders of the village named Bhai Nigahia Singh, a resident of Alamgir.

There was dense forest around Dulay in those days. Guru Gobind Singh tied his horse with a Phalahi tree at this site, hence the name of the Gurdwara, and stayed here for 1 night. The Phalahi tree still stands today.

Guru Gobind Singh sent a message for 2 Sardars, Bhai Jattu and Bhai Swai, from Kila Raipur (a nearby village) to come here and meet Guru Sahib.

However the 2 Sardars failed to turn up. From here Guru Gobind Singh travelled to Dolon Kalan nearby, then Rattan village and towards Raikot.

When the wives of the 2 Sardars heard what happened, they travelled to Rattan with parshad and a dushalla to seek forgiveness from Guru Sahib.

Guru Gobind Singh gave his blessings and forgiveness.
