Tur, Village 9 km southwest of Khadur Sahib (31"26`N, 75`6`E) in Amritsar district of the Punjab, claims a historical shrine, Gurdwara Patshahi Dusari, dedicated to Guru Angad (1506-52) who, according to local tradition, first came here from Khadur Sahib at the insistence of local peasants misguided by an ascetic. From here the Guru went on to Khan Chhapri.A simple shrine established here was replaced by a gurdwara raised by Bhai Nattha Singh at the beginning of the twentieth century.The present buildings within a two-acre walled compound were constructed during the 1960`s through karseva. The sanctum is at one end of a marble floored hall. Above the sanctum is a square domed room topped by a gold plated pinnacle. The Gurdwara is maintained by the local sangat.
In 1601 AD, when it failed to rain the jatt farmers in Khadoor approached Sri Guru Angad Sahib Ji, who was also in Khadoor. The farmers pleaded with Guru Ji to bring rain to the area as the seasonal rains had failed and their was a drought. Guru Ji asked them to accept the will of the Almighty.
A hindu yogi named Tapa, also known as Shiv Nath, at Khadoor tried to discredit Guru Ji and wanted to replace him. Tapa told the jatts to ask Guru Angad Sahib Ji to bring rain or leave Khadoor. Guru Angad said that if, by leaving Khadoor, rain would fall then he would leave.
Guru Angad Sahib Ji left Khadoor and arrived in Tur at the site Gurdwara Sri Guru Angad Sahib Tur. After stopping to rest Guru Angad travelled to Chapri to the site of Gurdwara Sri Chapri Sahib. The rains failed to return so Bhai Amar Das, the future Guru Amar Das, accompanied the Sangat from Khadoor and pleaded with Guru Angad Sahib Ji to return. The Sangat felt sorry for their foolishness and asked for forgivness.
Guru Angad said that the rain would fall wherever Tapa went. The farmers went to see Tapa and saw that it was raining in a small area around him. The farmers needing rain wanted Tapa to visit their fields. They started pulling him in different directions until he was torn to pieces.
