Amritsar the city was originally built in the year 1574 by Sri Guru Ram Das Ji. The site of the gurdwara was surrounded by a small lake in a thin forest. Land for the city was acquired by Guru Amar Das Ji. There are different stories about it. According to one Emperor Akbar, while visiting Sri Guru Amar Das ji , in the neighbouring town of Goindval, was so impressed by the way of life in the town that he gave a jagir (the land and the revenues of several villages in the vicinity) to Guru’s daughter Bibi Bhani ji as a gift on her marriage to Bhai Jetha. Bhai Jetha later became the fourth Sikh guru, Guru Ram Das ji . Guru Ram Das ji enlarged the lake and built a small township around it. The town was named after Guru Ram Das as Guru Ka Chak’, Chak Ram Das or Ram Das Pura.
Guru Ram Das Ji began the construction of the Darbar sahib . It was Guru Arjan Dev Sahib who layed it’s foundation with the help of a Muslim priest Hazrat Mian Mir ji With the help of other prominent Sikhs like Baba Budha ji and Bhai Gurdas ji, Guru Arjan Sahib took on the building work.
