According to local tradition, the Guru, sitting here on a dead her tree trunk discoursed with a Muslim faqir, Shah Bakhtiar, whose tomb now stands on the eastern outskirts of the village. Gurdwara Babe di Ber Sahib, or simply Ber Sahib, marking the site still has two her trees which are believed to have sprouted from the log on which Guru Nanak had sat. The present building, a square room with the sanctum in the middle, was constructed in 1920. Above the sanctum are two storeys of square rooms topped by a lotus dome w^ith a gilded pinnacle. Divans, accompanied by Guru ka Langar, mark the observance of every full moon day.
