Bhai Dharam Singh Gurudwara was set up in Saifpur, 2.5 kilometers from Hasinapur in memory of Bahi Dharam Singh, one of the Panj Pyare or the five revered ones whom Sikh guru, Guru Govind Singh loved most.

The Guru asked for five persons from among his followers who could volunteer for self-sacrifice for his cause. These five were the first group of people to be initiated into the Sikh Faith. One of these five volunteers was Bhai Dharam Singh.

Bhai Dharam Singh originally belonged to the Jat community. His name was Dharam Dass. He was born to Bhai Sant Ram and Mai Sabho in village Saifpur-Karmchandpur in Histinapur in 1666.

The sant was a highly religious person. He was introduced to Sikh Religion when he was just 13 years old. He spent most of his in pursuit of attaining enlightenment. He died at Gurudwara Nanded Sahib in 1708 at the age of 42.

Bhai Dharam Singh Gurdwara is regarded as one of the holiest pilgrim centers for the Sikh community.
