In 1651, Guru Har Rai Sahib Jee and his family and 2200 Sikh men were traveling by horse from Kiratpur Sahib. On route to Kartarpur Sahib, Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji stayed at a place where there is now a Gurdwara called Harian Bela for 3 days. Very close to Harian Bela, resided an individual by the name of Baba Prem Das Ji Parjapatt. When word spread that Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji's are at Harian Bela, people from near and far came to be blessed by Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji.

Baba Prem Das Ji Parjapatt tended to the care and looking after of Shri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji's horses. Baba Prem Das Ji Parjapatt fed the horses green vines with roots intact as that was all he had to offer at his home. The horses were noticeably content and Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji asked Baba Prem Das Ji Parjapatt what he had fed the horses. Baba Prem Das Ji Parjapatt replied that all he had in his home to offer for the horses was green vines.

Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji was pleased with the care that had been provided to his horses and in return Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji blessed Baba Prem Das Ji Parjapatt with the blessing that "Forever more the vines will remain green and be rid of any ailments with proper meditation". This blessing was to be carried to Baba Prem Das Ji Parjapatt and anyone who had true humbleness to allow for the creation of their families.

To this day the vines have still remained strong and green and are now surrounded with a metal cage (to protect the same) directly in front of the Gurdwara Sahib. The Gurudwara Sahib is built about 5 feet behind the encased green vines. The green vines are still entwined around the Date Tree to which Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji had tied his horse to, in 1651.

A short distance from the Gurudwara Sahib is the "Sarowar" designated area for meditational bathing. In 1651 Shri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji pierced the ground with his arrow to allow for water (as at that time there was no water supply anywhere near the area).

    • British account of Akali Phoola Singh   THE DEATH OF PHOOLA SINGH – extract from the poem by R.W.Bingham And fiercer raged the stubborn strife, not so unequal then, But Phoola Sing, the Nihung Chief, had lost three hundred men. Himself once more was wounded, still like a flaming star, Leading the strife, was fairly seen his flashing scimitar: And fiercer still the battle grew, and louder still was cried The “Allah Ho,” from Moslem ranks—”Wah Khalsajee,” replied. And still the Sikhs press on; the Khalsa bayonets thrust, Makes many a brawny Affghan to bite the trampled dust: But Phoola Sing has fallen ;—his leadership is o’er, The doubly gallant Chieftain, lies weltering in his gore. He fell on “Terees” top; he saw the black banner fly Close by his side,— the guiding star which led to Victory; He raised his thrilling cheer once more, the bullet pierced his brain. He fell, on heaps of slaughtered foes;— he’ll never fight again. Then rose from Khalsa ranks the yell of anguish and of ire, They fiercely rushed upon the foe, like a devouring fire; In vain, in vain were sword and lance, in vain were helm and targer Nor foot, nor horse, could there avail, ‘gainst that resistless charge. The Moslem ranks are wavering now, their banners rent and torn. “Wah Gooroojee,” once more the cry, and down the hill they’re As well resist an avalanche, or whirlwind in its force, As try to stem the dreadful rush of bayonets in their course. The plain and hill, were covered o’er, the Loonda full of slain, And since that day, the Affghans ne’er have dared the strife again; But since the death of Phoola Sing, have crouched before our power. While we have ruled by right of arms the valley of Peshawur.
    • Akali Phoola Singh died while in battle against the Afghans, Akali Phoola Singh broke his kneecap and fell off his horse but then re-entered the battle this time on the back of an elephant making him an easier target. He died in battle like a true warrior.  Vaar written by Missar Hari Chand about Akali Phoola Singh titled "mighty friend"     Old painting from Jammu depicting Singhs last battle
