Gurdwara Tahli Sahib is the third shrine built in memory of Guru Hargobind Ji's visit to Rehsema. When Guru Dev Ji reached this place, the marriage of the daughter of a Gosai Sadhu was being solemnized. Guru Dev Ji went to his house at his supplications. Guru Ji presented the Sadhu one hundred rupees in a purse along with a sehli (cap). These three items were kept here as relics. The pond where the Guru washed his feet was later turned into a place of worship.

The shrine called Tahli Sahib is located at the eastern side of the village where Guru Sahib stayed while on his way to Kashmir. During his stay he had tied his horse to a sheesham (siccoo) tree and thus it came to be called Tahli Sahib. The shrine looks like a house and some people live in it.

The village is now known as Salehpur. Its P.S. is Chaprar of tehsil and district Sialkot.

This darbar was built by the Sangat of Amritsar. A fair used to be held on 1st, 2nd and 3rd of Har. 3 ghumaon of land is endowed to the Gurdwara.
