This Gurdwara is displaying its splendour in the village Padhana located outer west to the village, near Police Station Barki, district Lahore.

Sixth Sikh Guru, Guru Hargobind Ji (1595-1644) arrived in this village from Dhilvan due to the love and affection of the villagers. During his stay, he talked about Sat Gur Ji with a Jat of Sandhu clan named Jalhan Jat, a prominent land lord of the village.

Initially Gurdwara was built in a simple pattern. Sardar Attar Singh of Padhana, the cheif of this village, started the reconstruction of it, and with the efforts of villagers a beautiful building was erected. A local committee used to arrange for the Langar.
