Bhatt Nalh was a Gurmukh Brahmin whose pious hymns are present in Adi Granth Sahib. He had studied Bani of Guru Ram Dass and followed it and had written 16 Savaiyays in Praise of God and Admired Guru Ram Dass. He introduced two chand one Jholna and Other Radd.

Acc. to scholars, the style of this poet is absolutely parallel to Bhatt Kalh. In certain cases, the use of images and mataphors is the same. For instance he has called Guru Ramdas, as Janak, as had been mentioned earlier by Bhatt Kalh. The vocabulary and meters are also similar. However, the speciality of this poet is that he has introduced two new Chhands called Jhoolna , and Radd. As in the case of Bhatt Kalshar, we had stated that this group of eleverr had come to the congregation of Guru Arjun Dev, this historical fact has also been confirmed by Bhatt Nalh. He says that after touching the sacred feet of Guru Arjun Dev, a sense of solemnity, peace and serenity prevailed upon him.
