A wild tree stands at this place. It is so old that its long branches touch the ground. It is a bit high at the centre. According to a Sikh legend, Guru Nanak rested for a while at this place, after returning from Chuharakana, performing the true business. The Guru had fed the hungry Sadhus with a sum of Rs. 20 /- obtained from his father. On knowing this, Mehta kalu first felt annoyed with his son and afterwards brought him home. On admonishing the son, the father recieved a reply that he had spent his money in the true business. On hearing of this incident, Rai Bular pleaded before Mehta Kalu by saying "Patwari Ji ! lest you chide the boy, let me make it clear to you that the whole city is blessed by his grace and presence". This Shrine is situated at a distance of one kilometre from Gurdwara Janam Asthan. Pilgrims feel it their proud privilege to pay their homage.
