Gurdwara Beed Baba Budda is situated on Chaabal - Amritsar road near village Jhabal Kalan in district Amritsar (Punjab) India. Baba Budha ji spent much of his life here. Guru Arjan Dev also visited this place at some stage.

Gurdwara Beed Baba Budda Ji also known as Gurudwara Bir Baba Budha, this is situated in the revenue limits of the village of Thatta, 20 km south of Amritsar. The shrine honours and commemorates Baba Budha (1506 - 1631), the venerable Sikh of the time of Guru Nanak who lived long enough to anoint five succeeding Gurus.

He spent many years looking after the "bir", literally a reserved forest used for cattle grazing, said to have been offered to Guru Arjan by Chaudhari Langah of Patti out of his private lands. According to Gurbilas Chhevin Patshahi, it was here on 21 Assu 1651 Bk/20 September 1594, that Mata Ganga the wife of Guru Arjan, received blessings for an illustrious son (the future Guru Har Gobind) from Baba Budha.

Mata Ganga ji desired her wish for son which Shri Guru Arjan Dev Ji suggested her to pay homage to Baba Bhuda Ji and ask for putar di daat, Mata ji got delicious food prepared and visited Baba Ji here in rath. But Baba ji refused to accept the food. Later Mata ji herself prepared missi roti and a onion (pyaag) and visited Baba ji. Baba Bhuda Ji blessed Mata ji with son and told her that her son would be great warrior and he will crush muslims head as he crushed the onion. And Later Mata ji and SHRI GURU ARJAN DEV JI was blessed with putar Shri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji.
