This Gurdwara is situated at a distance of 25 Km from Patti City in Village Puhla.
Bhai Taru Singh Ji was born at this place in the Year 1717. He lost his Father in the childhood and used to reside with his Mother and sister. He was a gentle Gursikh and always wanted to live peacefully.
After the defeat of Baba Banda Singh Bahadur and his 700 followers and their martyrdom at Delhi , Zakhrya Khan, the Governor of Lahore, wanted to finish all the Sikhs. He announced a reward of Rs. 10 to anyone giving information leading to the arrest of a Sikh and Rs. 50 to anyone bringing the head of a Sikh. Soon most of the Sikhs retired to the forests for their safety, but continued to attack Mughal forces every now and then. Some gentle Sikhs still lived in small Villages. Bhai Taru Ji also continued to reside in his Village and used to cultivate his fields. Bhai Taru Ji's Village was near Bir Baba Buddha Ji and some Sikhs lived at nearby forests. Bhai Ji's Mother and sister used to prepare food at Night and Taru Ji carried these Chappatis with milk into forests for Sikhs. This continued for some Years.
One Night, a fisherman named Rahim Baksh stayed at Taru Ji's house. Hr told Taru Ji that the commander of Patti had kidnapped his young daughter. Taru Ji said that soon his daughter will be back. Taru Ji told about this to the Sikhs who were residing in the forests. The Sikhs attacked Patti, killed the commander of Patti and brought the daughter of Rahim Baksh back. Khushala, the headman of Village Puhla, informed Zakhrya Khan about this daring act of the Sikhs and Bhai Taru Ji. One Harbhagat of Village Jandiala also informed Zakhrya Khan that Bhai Taru supplies eatables to Sikhs in the forests. Zakhrya Khan sent his men to arrest Taru Ji and bring him to Lahore. At Lahore, Zakhrya Khan asked Taru Ji to convert to Islam or his hair would be taken off. Zakhrya Khan said that a rebel like you should be beaten with shoes. Bhai Taru Ji said that it is evil Governors like you, who deserve such treatment. Zakhrya Khan got angry and ordered to remove the hair of Bhai Taru Ji alongwith Scalp. Bhai Taru Ji was brought to the Naulakha Bazaar of Lahore in 1745 and his Scalpe alongwith hair was scraped off. Bhai Ji had said that he would die after the death of Zakhrya Khan. He continued to bleed for many Days, reciting Holy 'Japji Sahib'. Soon Zakhrya Khan failed to pass his urine and suffered from acute pain. When medicines did not improve his condition, someone suggested that his head should be struck with the shoes of Bhai Taru Ji. Zakhrya Khan agreed to this and with every stroke of the shoes on his head, some urine was released. Zakhrya Khan continued to pass urine in this way and finally died after the severe beating. Bhai Taru Ji breathed his last after the death of Zakhrya Khan.
