Gurdwara Pehli Patshahi was once a beautiful Gurdwara of Jagat Guru Nanak Dev Ji in the village of Bhail. Bhail is located next to the village of Rossay. Both villages are located on Manga-Kasur road about 4 kilometers off the metalled road. Kasur city, is in Pakistan very near the India border.

Jagat Guru stayed in the village for some time while going to Ram Thaman from Manga. Only one arched door of the Gurdwara has survived; the Prakashasthan has vanished. Though the once beautiful gate or doorway still is an architectural treasure which still displays the engineering of the complicated brickwork.

Refugees are currently settled in the residential quarters of the gurdwara.
