Santokhsar Sahib is one of the five holy sarovars that was constructed by Guru Arjan Dev. Guru Mar Das started the excavation for the sarovar and it was completed by Guru Arjan Dev. The story behind the name of the sarovar states that Guru Amar Das found a saint named Santakha, meditating at the site. The saint told Guru Amar Das that he was waiting for the Guru to come and give him salvation. Impressed, Guru Amar Das JI named the sarovar as Santokhsar and gurudwara as Santokhsar Sahib.
