Gurdwara Paur Sahib consists of a small domed room with a verandah in front, near a spring whose name is said to be based on a legend similar to the one related to Triveni Sahib. In its case the spring is said to have been created by the Guru's horse stamping its paur (hoof).
Guru Ka Lahore is a small village located in the Bilaspur district of the State of Himachal Pradesh. Guru Ka Lahore is located 13 km from Anandpur Sahib.
There are 4 Historic Sikh Gurdwaras at Guru Ka Lahore.
The marriage arrangement of young Gobind Rai (the future Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji) took place during the lifetime of his father Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji, but the marriage had been postponed because of the elder Guru's martyrdom in November 1675.
Early in 1677, Mata Jito's father, Bhai Hari Jas, a resident of Lahore, came to Chak Nanaki (which later became known as Anandpur Sahib) and proposed that the bridegroom's marriage party should go to Lahore with the marriage being performed at an early and suitable date.
The elders in the holy family considered that it was still not politically advisable to go to Lahore becauseof the ill treatment of Sikhs and other non-mulsims at the hands of the evil mughal empire.
Young Guru Gobind Singh said, 'We shall create a 'Lahore' near here and the bride's family may come and live in it.' Consequently, a temporary camp was set up 13 km from Anandpur Sahib and looked like part of Lahore. The site was called Guru Ka Lahore.
Bhai Hari Jas brought his family and other relatives to the temporary 'Lahore' and the marriage took place on 23rd Har 1734 Bikrami/ 21st June 1677. Even after the camp had been disassembled and vacated, the place continued to be considered holy.
