This Bunga was constructed by Sher-e-Punjab Maharaja Ranjeet Singh specially for the purpose of Bhajan Bandagi (praying).

In this duration Sant Ji completed 1 lakh 25 thousand Jap Ji Sahib and for straight 7 days & nights chanted the name of the Almighty standing in the river Godavari.  As a result Guru Gobind Singh Ji came to meet Sant Ji and ordered go to Punjab to spread Sikhism.
