IALL KALAN, village 10 km west of Samrala (30″50`N, 76″11`E) in Ludhiana district possesses a shrine called Gurdwara Guru Sai. commemorating the visit of Guru Gobind Singh. When Guru Gobind Singh, disguised as the Pir of Uchch and carried in a palanquin, was passing by this village, the commander of an imperial patrol in search of him, suspecting that the Pir might in faci be the Guru, stopped and interrogated the party. Sayyid Pir Muhammad of Nurpur, who was present and who had in fact recognized the Guru for he had once been Ins Persian tutor, testified that the personage inside the palanquin was a most exalted Pir, and the party was allowed to proceed.
A modest looking shrine was later established under a banyan tree where Guru Gobind Singh had stopped. The present building was raised towards the close of the nineteenth century by Namdhari Sikhs from whom the ShiromanT Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee acquired possession through a legal suit. The Gurdwara, inside a walled compound is an octagonshaped room, with the sanctum in the middle. Over the sanctum on the first floor there is a low domed room built in the same style. In a field next to the Gurdwara compound there is a peculiar banyan tree having pointed leaves like those of a pipal tree. The villagers see in this peculiarity Guru Gobind Singh`s own miracle.
