The child was the personification of something wondrous. Through a miracle Baba, Atal Rai once revived a dead child. Guru Hargobind was convinced that the Sikh religion did not believe in any kind of miracle and that it was an uncalled-for interference in the ways of God and the cosmic system. The Guru, therefore, felt annoyed with his son. To atone for the intervention in the divine ways, the child left for his heavenly abode. It is at the point of the terrestrial exist of Baba Atal Rai that a nine stories Gurdwara symbolic of his 9 years of existence was constructed. It is known as Baba Atal.
