Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji had made Kiratpur Sahib the center of preaching religion leaving Amritsar. In 1664 A.D. after attaining the apostleship/Gurgaddi Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib accompanied by Bhai Makhan Shah Lubhana, Bhai Dwarka Dass and Bhai Garrhia reached Sri Amritsar to visit His great center Sri Harmandir Sahib. The Guru had the holy dip in the holy tank (Srovar). Hari Ji Sodhi, Baba Prithi Chand Meena’s grandson the manager of that time had already witnessed the bad fate met to Baba Dhir Mal & Baba Bakala. So being terrified he locked the doors of Sri Harmandir Sahib and threw the keys into the holy tank and went to his village Heyer. After bowing his forehead from the very outside, after sitting beneath a Beri (tree) for sometime, the tree lying on one side at the right direction of Sri Akal Takht Sahib, he went to Vallah. Reacting to this evil deed of the priests Bhai Makhan Shah Lubhana after breaking the locks opened the doors and amended profoundly the abstinent priests. The priests for seeking pardon of their deed approached the Guru at Vallah. There the Guru, recited these words. He put the priests to shame by stating: "What sort of administrators of Sri Darbar Sahib are you that in spite of living in the source of nectar your minds are burning with lust: "".

Vallah Guru ka Galla: The village 'Vallah' is the moneybox of the Guru. These were the blessings showered by the Guru. The Guru passed on the virtues of renunciation, generosity and humbleness. "Jithae jaaei bahae mera satguru so than suhava ram raaje"
