Earlier in the times of the Gurus, there was a famous Dharamsal of Bhai Saalo who was an ardent Bhagat (follower) of Guru Arjun Dev ji. A picture of the Thoba (a small pond with earthen floor), now tiled, appears below.
The Sikh sangat which came from Lahore to visit Guru ji in Amritsar would pass through this route and stop over at the Dharamsal of Bhai Saalo. Guru Arjun Dev ji himself visited Bhai Salo's dharamsal many times, showing the affection which guru ji had for his gursikhs.
Bhai Saalo breathed his last in Samat 1685 (Ch. 1628).
