This Gurdwara is situated at a distance of 32 Km from Batala and 40 Km from Gurdaspur City in the town of Shri Hargobindpur.

Sayyed Baba Jaani Shah was a very religious person and always wanted to have a glimpse of God. He disguised himself as a Faqir and left his home in the hope of finding a way to meet God. He prayed to the Gods of Hindus and Muslims, offered five Namazs (the Muslim Prayer) daily and continued to meditate, but could not succeed. He was told by someone about Sixth Sikh Guru, Shri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji, so he went to meet a person named Khwaja Roshan, who used to serve the horses of Shri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji. Baba Jaani Shah told Khwaja Ji about his condition. So Khwaja Roshan asked Baba Ji to pray before Guru Ji sitting at his door. Thus, Jaani Shah reached and sat at Guru Ji's door and started praying without eating anything for many days. Guru Ji sent a Sikh to Jaani Shah to tell him that if he wanted money, clothes or something else, he would be given that. But Baba Jaani Shah refused to take anything and said that please enable Jaani to meet Jaani (the beloved God). Then Guru Ji raised a wall to test the devotion of Jaani Shah. Some days later, when Sikhs requested, Guru Ji said that if Jaani Shah wanted to meet God he should jump into river Beas. One Sikh went and told Jaani Shah about what Guru Ji had said. Baba Jaani Shah immediately ran towards river Beas. Then Guru Ji sent Bhai Biddhi Chand to bring him back. Baba Jaani Shah fell at Guru Ji's feet. Guru Ji took him in his arms and blessed him that anyone who will visit his place
