Major Harbhajan Singh served in the Indian Army and lost his life while escorting a mule caravan from his battalion headquarters in Tekula to Dengchukla in 1968. Harbhajan Singh’s body was found when a soldier dreamt of him telling him exactly where to find the body.

Soon, the body was found and the shrine was made in the honor of the brave soldier. Today, it is said that Harbhajan Singh warns Indian soldiers of the upcoming attacks at the Indo-Chinese borders and even Chinese army men believe to have seen a human figure patrolling the border at night.

Today, the temple consists of a room where the personal belongings of Baba Harbhajan Singh are cared for and kept for worship.
