HISTORY

This Sarai is dedicated to Mata Gangaji. She was wife of Guru Arjan Dev ji & daughter of Bhai Krishan Chand . The wife of a Guru is a very blessed thing to be. Even though her life was very blessed with the Guru, she still seemed very sad because she could not have a baby. Mata Ganga Ji once expressed a wish to be blessed with a son. Guru Arjan Dev ji said to her "Ask not me but a pious Sikh like Baba Buddha Ji". Mata Ji went to see Baba Ji taking with her many richly prepared dishes. Baba Ji was not happy, "I am but a grass cutter of the House of Guru Nanak how can I grant you what you wish?" Mata Ji returned home and told Guru ji what had happened. Guru Ji said "Mata Ji do as I say, prepare a simple meal. Make missi roti (bread made of wheat and lentils) with your own hands and take some onions and lassi (butter milk) and walk with humility in your heart. Mata Ji did as she was asked. She humbly presented the food, Baba Ji was pleased. As he ate he blessed Mata Ji " O mother, thy son will be the king of kings, he will rule the hearts of his people" As he crushed an onion in his hand Baba ji said " and he will crush the heads of evil rulers". Thus Mata Ji was blessed with a son, who was named Hargobind. Hargobind Ji became the sixth Guru Of the Sikhs. She died at at Baba Bakala on 14 May 1621.
