• GURUDWARA SHRI SANH SAHIB is situated in the Basarke Village of Amritsar Distt. This Gurudwara is also known as Gurudwara Chaurasikat Sahib and is situated at a distance of 15 Km Southwest of Amritsar City on Chheherta-Gurudwara Bir Baba Buddha Ji Road in Village Basarke, District Amritsar, Punjab.
• GURU AMAR DAS JI was named next GURU by GURU ANGAD DEV JI, Datu ji son of GURU ANGAD DEV JI feeling jealous by this for not being appointed GURU, forced GURU AMAR DAS JI to leave Goindwal Sahib, GURU AMAR DAS JI being the humble person, returned to his family village of Basarke. Here GURU SAHIB shut himself up in a small hut with a note on the door, "He who opens this door is no Sikh of mine, nor i am his GURU.'" When a delegation of Sikhs lead by BABA BUDHA JI found the hut they were perplexed as what to do. Finally BABA BUDHA JI decided to make a hole in the wall so as not to go against the GURU SAHIB's instructions. Once inside they pleaded with the GURU to return to Goindwal Sahib as only he was their true beloved GURU and the Sikhs could not live without him. GURU AMAR DAS JI finally relented and returned with the Sikhs. The hole in the wall is still preserved today inside the Gurudwara Sahib. Gurudwara Sahib is situated on the Amritsar Chaubal Road.
