Rehsema, now named as Salehpur, is located in the Sialkot district of Pakistan and is just over 1 km from the Indian border.
There are 3 Historic Sikh Gurdwaras located in Rehsema.
There was a sarovar of Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji's located at a distance of half a kilometer from Rehsema.
It is said that there was a dry pond when Guru Hargobind arrived at the place. Guru Hargobind made water appear from the ground by throwing his spear.
There was a Gurdwara and Prakash of Guru Granth Sahib Ji used to be held. The sacred sarovar has been levelled now and the Gurdwara has been occupied by muslims.
There is an embankment near Chaprar and village Rehsema can be reached by crossing this embankment. Gurdwara Kund Sahib has been completely destroyed. A Tap Asthan (praying chamber) at the edge of Gurdwara Sri Kund Sahib is still standing today.
Gurdwara Sri Tahli Sahib Rehsema is the third Gurdwara of Guru Hargobind in this village. When Guru Hargobind reached this place, the marriage of a Gosai Sadhu's daughter was being solemnized.
Guru Hargobind went to Gosai's house at his supplications. The pond where Guru Hargobind washed his feet was turned into a place of worship. Guru Hargobind presented the Sadhu with one hundred rupees in a purse along with a seli (local) cap. The items were kept here as relics.
The Gurdwara called Tahli Sahib is located at the eastern side of the village. Guru Ji stayed here while on his way to Kashmir and during his stay Guru Ji tied his horse with a sheesham (siccoo) tree and thus it came to be called Tahli Sahib. The Gurdwara looks like a house and muslims live in it.
This Gurdwara was built by the Sangat of Amritsar. A fair used to be held on 1st, 2nd and 3rd of Har. 3 ghumaon of land is endowed to the Gurdwara.
