Guru Amar Dass ji wanted to colonize a new City. In June 1570 A D he took Sri Guru Ram Dass with him and reached the place where he wanted to build a new city. It was that place where Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Bhai Mardana had rested for some time when they were going on a long journey starting from Sultanpur Lodhi. When Guru Nanak Dev Ji was resting at that beautiful place he had said, One day a beautiful city and a pool of nectar will be constructed at this place.
When Guru Amar Dass Ji and (Guru) Ram Dass Ji reached at this place, Guru Amar Das Ji sent for the headmen of the villages of Gumtala, Tung, Gilwaali and Sultanwind. The Guru told them that he want ed to colonize a new city at that place. The people of those villages agreed to the proposal of the Guru Ji and showed their willingness to contribute their lands for the construction of the city. But the guru told them frankly that he would compensate them according to the current value of the land. So he paid the price of the land and got the deed transferred to his name.
