Etymology of Jaitu
"Gangsar" Jaitu takes its name from a folk story in which Guru Gobind Singh Ji visited the town and was sitting on a sand dune when he saw a saint crying. The guru asked him why he was crying and the saint replied that he was crying because he lost his bowl in the Ganges river. After hearing his misfortune, the Guru fired off an arrow which struck the ground and opened a water source. Later Gurdwaras were constructed on both the sites, on the sand dune where the Guru was sitting and where lake was opened.
