    It is the tree under which the leper from famous historical story from the times of guru Ram Das was sitting got cured of his leprosy & thus it came to be known as Dukh bhanjani Beri as it relieves the pains and afflictions. A Gurudwara has been built near that Bed and thousands of people take bath near that Beri.

    Duni Chand Khatri was a rich land lord of Patti town (31°16'52.52"N 74°51'26.63"E). He had five daughters. All were beautiful and talented. One day Duni Chand asked his daughters,"Tell me who provides you meals" Elder four daughter readily said that their father was providing them every thing. He is their benefactor. But the younger daughter named, Rajni replied, "It is God that sustains all living beings" Hearing this reply Duni Chand was so enraged that he married Rajni to a leper. But Rajni did not care about it. She accepted the leper as her husband and served him with great love.In those days Guru Ram Das Ji was constructing a new city at Amritsar. Rajni took the leper with him and reached Amritsar. She met the devotees of the Guru When devotees saw that her husband was leper they took pity on her and provided him a room to live. She also joined the other devotees and was deputed to cook meals in the common kitchen. She was well contented with her fate. She was always contemplating the name of God. When she was going to join his duty, she used to take her husband with her. Making a suitable arrangement for his sitting under a shady tree, she used to go to the kitchen. One day she left him to sit under a Ber tree. When her husband the leper was sitting on the bank of the pond, he saw a pair of crows dipped down in the pool and flew away with their colour changing from black to white. Seeingthis he concluded that pool did not contain an ordinary water, so he made up his mind to bathe in the tank. He reached near the pond and dipped into the water. Dukh Bhanjani Beri in 1884 When he came out he was astonished to see himself hale and healthy, He was no longer a leper. He walked as a youngman and again sat under the shade of the Ber tree. When Rajni returned from langar she was unable to recognize him. When the youngman convinced him her telling her the whole story; Rajni felt very happy. They met Guru Ram Dass Ji and told him the whole story The Guru was pleased to hear it. He told Baba Budha Ji that pond was the same haly place about which Gum Amar Dass Ji had foretold. When the people of the area heard about the appearance of Netar pond they rushed to see and have a bath in it The tree under which the leper was sitting came to be known as Dukh bhanjani Beri as it relieves the pains and afflictions A Gurdwara has been built near that Bed and thousands of people take bath near that Beri

Where to stay in Amritsar

The area of Amritsar that surrounds the Golden Temple can be an entertaining, enriching, and chaotic place to stay. A number of budget and mid-range hotels and hostels sit on the narrow streets here, providing decent rooms and some shared lodgings for pilgrims and tourists alike. The more upmarket and spacious options largely lie to the north. Hall Road offers plenty of hotels and hostels, while the most luxurious options sit to the north of the train station, primarily along Queens Road.
