Gurudwara Sri Cheharta Sahib is situated in the Amritsar City near Village Guru Ki Wadali. Guru ki Wadali is the birthplace of the Sixth Guru, Sri Guru HarGobind Sahib ji, the son of Sri Guru Arjan Dev ji. To celebrate the birth of his son, Guru Arjan Dev ji constructed a big well at this place. This well had six Persian wheels to draw out the water and thus came to be known as Chhe harta, the well with six wheels. This well helped in removing water scarcity in the region and enabled the greening of the fields. This well with persian wheels is still preserved here.
Gurdwara Chheharta Sahib is located near the Village of Guru ki Vadali at a distance of 7kms west of Amritsar on Amritsar - Gurusar Sultan Road. The Village is the birth place of the Sixth Guru, HarGobind Sahib, son of Guru Arjan Dev. Built within a 6 acre walled compound, the gurdwara consists of a divan hall and above this hall there is a square sanctum with a lotus dome topped by a gold plated pinnacle. In front of the hall, a 25 metre tall flagposts can be seen on either side which is hoisted by two Sikh flags.

A big well was constructed here by Guru Arjan Dev Ji to celebrate the birth of his son. Known as Chheharta (chhe-six , harta- wheel), this well with six Persian wheels which is used to draw out the water helped in removing water scarcity in the region. The Gurudwara was named after this well. Now the well has been covered, but its water is still pumped to feed the main tank of the Gurdwara.
