جو سکھ چھجو دے چوبارے - او بلخ نہ بخارے

जो सुख छाजो दे चोबरय - ओ बलख न बुखारी 

It was situated on Anarkali Road . During the regime of Bhangi Sardar's , a temple and inn was constructed in the Chajju' dwelling which later came to be known as Chajju da Chaubar

According to Syed Muhammad Latif, this was situated close to the Mayo Hospital, south of Ratan Chand's Serae. Chajju was a godly man in the time of Shah Jahan. He was a resident of Lahore, and by caste a Bhatia. He was a sarraf, or dealer in money, but was fond of the sociey of the fakirs.

At last, having forsaken the world, he became a Bhagat, or devotee, and devoted the rest of his life to meditation and prayer. His death was mysterious. It is said that, when his last moments approached, he entered his cell and was seen no more.
