    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.
