    Gurudwara Bhai Bahilon Ji Sahib , Mansa , Punjab

    In 1553 A.D. at the time of construction of Harmandir Sahib, Guru
    Arjan Dev Ji made a call to the Sangat to set up brick kilns and
    bring bricks for the construction of Sarovar Sahib.

    Bhai Bahilon Ji, a devoted Sikh was keen to make the best bricks for
    Harmandir Sahib. He went from place to place to find the method for
    making the best bricks. He was told that if filth were added to the
    kiln, it would improve the quality of the bricks. Therefore he
    collected filth from wherever he could lay his hands on. When
    everyone presented the bricks before Guruji, he found that bricks
    made by Bhai Bahilon Ji, were ultra red and of best quality. Bhai
    Bahilon Ji himself being smeared with mud stayed behind and was
    hesitating to come forward. Guruji then went closer and hugged Bhai
    Bahilon Ji and said "Bhai Bahilon sab to pahilon" (Bhai Bahilon you
    are the first, then all).

    Prakash divas of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Guru Gobind Singh Ji and
    Shahidi divas of Guru Arjan Dev Ji are the main events over here.

    This Gurudwara Sahib marks the site of birth of Bhai Bahilon Ji.

    Gurudwara Bhai Bahilon Ji Sahib is situated in village Phapre Bhai
    Ke in the Mansa district of Punjab. It is 8 kms. from Budlada and 9
    kms. from Bhiki and 12 kms. from Mansa. It is situated at a distance
    of 2.5 km from Narinderpur railway station.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
