Guru Arjan Dev Ji, the Fifth Sikh Master, founded Tarn Taran Sahib in the year 1590, in the Land of Punjab (Majha Region). At that time, the digging of the lake tank started. When the tank was completed, it was the biggest and largest sarovar lake in the whole of Punjab. The foundation stone of Darbar Sahib was laid by Dhan Dhan Baba Buddha Ji, a famous Sikh saint (1506–1631). Later, the Sixth Sikh Master, Guru Hargobind Sahib, came to the gurduwara and stayed for some time. Guru Tegh Bahadur ji, the ninth Sikh Master, also visited Tarn Taran Sahib and preached to the Sikh sangat.
