This place built in memory of Shri Atal Rai, the son of sixth Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji. In fact Shri Atal Rai Ji at the age of nine cured his friend Mohan with magic, so Guru Ji advised him for not doing this type of things in life. Atal Rai meditated for this sin.

Originally a samadhi, or cenotaph, enshrining the remains of Atal Rai, a son of Guru Hargobind, the sixth Guru of the Sikhs, it was transformed, with the passage of time, into a gurudwara, because, in India, "the process of deification is aided by the tendency to develop the tomb raised over a man of eminence into a temple".
