BAHIRVAL, village in Chuniari tahsil (subdivision) of Lahore district of Pakistan, is sacred to Guru Arjan( 1563-1606), who once visited it during his travels in these parts. According to tradition, as the Guru arrived here from Jambar in the north, he met a poor peasant, Hema, at a well just outside the village and asked him for water to drink. Bhai Hema said, “The water of this well is brackish and not fit to drink. But I shall run to the village and fetch sweet water for you.” “No, brother,” said the Guru, “You should not take the trouble.
The water of this well would do.” It is said that the water drawn from the well was found to be sweet.Hema fell at the Guru`s feet and sought instruction. Gurdwara Patshahi V marked the site where the Guru had sojourned. The building raised during the 1930`s comprised a flat roofed hall with a verandah in front, inside a walled compound entered through a high gateway.
The Gurdwara was administered by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, Amritsar, through a local committee. A largely attended annual fair used to be held on the occasion of Poh sudi 7, the birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh, falling in December January. The Gurdwara was abandoned in the wake of migrations caused by the partition of the Punjab in 1947.
