Half a kilometre downstream from Gurdwara Hira Ghat marks the site of Guru ka Langar supervised by Mata Sahib Devan while the Guru stayed at Gurdwara Hira Ghat. The tradition is kept alive still by serving mid-day meal to pilgrims going the round of various shrines singly or in batches traveling by bus, arranged by the Management Board of Takht Sahib.

About 250 acres of land, partly arable, are attached to this Gurdwara. The Gurdwara and the land are managed by Nihang Singhs under the auspices of the Management Board.Here Mata Sahib Kaur Ji, the wife of Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji had meditated for long time in previous birth and when Guru Gobind Singh Ji came to Nanded, she used to meditate again at the holy site.

Guru Ji after daynlong travels and hunting would come to this place and take lunch. From that time the Langer or free kitchen is served at this Gurdwara Mata Sahib Kaur Ji, afterwards left for Delhi and took away some weapons of Guru Sahib for daily worship and departed for her heavenly abode there
