According to legend, Bassi Pathana was founded in 1540. As the name suggests, it was a city of Muslim Pathans. Bassi Pathana was visited by 9th guru of Sikhs, Guru Teg Bahadur Ji and 10th guru of Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh Ji. There are two Gurdwaras in the city in their memory. This historic city has one of only two temples of Lord Brahma, Brahmghat, the other one being at Pushkar in Rajasthan. A sage called Rishi Gajawanand is said to have meditated here for years. During one of those meditation sessions he accidentally put his leg in the Agni (Fire) which is traditionally lit while meditating. He was so involved in meditation that he did not realize that he had lost his leg in the fire. When his disciples saw that he had lost his leg, they made a leg of wood and brass. He was so delighted with this gesture that he blessed this city and said that no misfortune can ever strike this city. If a misfortune is sensed then this leg (after his death) should be moved through each house and misfortune will go away.
