The founder of the Sikh religion, Guru Nanak from his early age made friends with both Hindu and Muslim children and was very inquisitive about the meaning of life. Guru Nanak undertook long journeys to convey his message to the people in the form of musical hymns. He traveled throughout the Indian Subcontinent and further east, west, and north to spread his mission

Burewala has the importance for the Sikh followers as Baba Buru Nanak stayed at a shrine of Haji Sher Chawli Mashaekh and a Gurdwara of Guru Nanak Dev which is a half a kilometer from the Mazaar of Baba Haji Sher. The people call it “Tapasthan Guru Nanak” even now once Akali Singh Custodian (Sewadar) looked after the shrine but now a Muslim family is performing this duty.

The holy shrine Baba Haji Sher Dewan is located in Chak No. 317 EB, on the Burewala-Sahoka road. It is also known as Chak Dewan Sahib, Chawli Mashaekh but early days its name Khatowal was very famous in the sub-continent. The great sufi preacher of Islam including Hazrat Baba Faridudin Masud Ganj Shakar and Makhdoom Allauddin Ahmad Sabir Kalyari were born here and Hazrat Bahuddin Zakrai Multani, Hazrat Syed Jalaluddin Shah Bukhari, Hazrat Usman Marvandi famous known as Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, Makhdoom Allauddin Ahmad Sabir Kalyari and Sikhism founder Baba Guru Nannak stayed at this shrine.

There is well is in the locality half a kilometer from the shrine of Haji Sher Chawli Mashaekh which is called “Khoi Baba Farid”. It is said that Baba Farid meditated for twelve years hanging by a kachi tand (raw-yarn) in this well and achieved Bhakti. The well is still in use and water is cool and tasty There is a high boundary around the well and there is a beautiful Darbar of Sat Guru Nanak Dev Ji is in front of the gate of the well.

The beautiful Darbar of Sat Gur Nanak Dev named as Gurudwara Pehli Patshahi in front of this well is in destructive condition as the beauty of the place is being marred by the family living there. The Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) has neglected the importance of this place and some valuables scriptures and art work has been spoiled by the frequent white washing. The Sikh devotees including Former Revenue Sardar Harnek Singh, Forest Minister Hanjs Raj Josan others visited the place and expressed their concerns over the condition of the place. Tehsil Nazim Burewala Chaudhry Usman Ahmad Warraich along with local social workers Sanaullah Ghumman, Nadeem Mushtaq Ramay and others public representatives visited the place and demanded of Evacuee Trust Property Board to take notice of the situation to restore the beauty of the place according to its original architecture which will lead to more inter-religion cooperation and area could become an activity hub after devotees visits.
