The gurdwara houses the Shri Talab Asthan (where he disbursed salaries), the Shri Dastar Asthan (where he judged the turban-tying competitions) and the Kavi Durbar (the venue of the poetic symposia). There is a museum, which exhibits the pens of the Guru and the weapons of those times and a memorial dedicated to Kalpi Rishi.
