Gurdwara Khuhi Sahib


Gurdwara Khuhi Bhai Lalo Ji - 'Gurdwara at the well of Lalu'.

Bhai Lalo, a resident of Saidpur (Eminabad), was a carpenter of Getaura caste. Guru Nanak Dev ji stayed at his house when He came to Eminabad.

It is the place where the Guru ji composed the Bani (hymns) in Tilang raag.

A man by the name of Malik Bhago was an official of the ruler of Eminahad. He arranged a big feast for the Brahamins (Braham Bhoj) and also invited the Guru ji, who declined the invitation. This made him angry and he summoned the Guru ji.

The Guru ji squeezed his buttered bread with one hand and with other hand squeezed the plain bread of Bhai Lalo before all present in the court. Blood started trickling from Malik's buttered bread and milk oozed out of plain bread of Lalo.

The Guru ji explained that Malik's income was earned by 'sucking' the blood of the poor people whereas the income of Bhai Lalo had the milk earned by his hard labour. 'This was the reason behind my rejection of your rich food and that was why I had preferred the simple diet earned through hard labour,' said the Guru.

Lalu's house, where Guru Nanak Dev Ji had stayed, was made into a Gurdwara.

The well in front of the Gurdwara still provides drinking water is still intact and usable.
