Baba Atal Rai Ji

This is the name of a Gurdwara Sahib that was constructed in memory of Baba Atal Rai, the beloved son of Guru Hargobind. Baba Atal Rai left the earth and was cremated here.

Atal Rai was a much beloved son of Guru Hargobind and was born in 1620. One day as young Atal Rai playmate was bitten by a snake and died. At seeing the boy’s family crying over his body, Atal Rai bought his friend back to life. When Guru Hargobind heard of the miracle he admonished his son saying that "How can anyone interfere with the ways of God?". Baba Atal Rai was so distressed at hearing his fathers reprimand that he withdrew to the side of Kaulsar pool and saying his prayers, lay down and gave up his life for the life that he had saved.

The nine stories of the Gurdwara represent the nine years of Baba Atal's short life.

Two great heroes from Sikh history Nawab Kapur Singh and Jassa Singh Ahluwalia were also cremated here.
