Asif Jah Nawab-ud-dowlah of Nizam Dynasity. the Nizam Miltary forces, which consisted of Arab and Rohilla Soldiers, were gradually getting out of his control. To control the forces and the public, Diwan Chandu Lal adviced him of getting Military help from Sher-e-Punjab Maharaja Ranjeet Singh Ji. Messages accompanied by valuable gifts, one was Golden Canopy (Chandani) worth Lakhs of Rupees were sent across the country to Punjab. Shere-e-Punjab Maharaja Ranjeet Singhji very much pleased by the Chandni, placed it in the Diwan of Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji in Sri Harmander Sahib, Amritsar. He sent fifteen hundred (1500) Lahori soldiers under the supervision (Leadership) of Fourteen Risals and Fourteen Nishan Sahiban. He also announced that the Salary and basic equipments for this Lahori Force will be given from Punjab. Nearly 200 acres of Land in between Puranapul to Anantagiri and River Musi to MirAlam Lake were given for thier cantonaments. From that time this place was named as "Sikh Chawniath". Among the 14 Risals, one was Sardar Asha Singh Risaldar. He defeated the Nawabs of Adilabad and was succesful in collecting the revenues. Impressed by his abilities, Raja Gondu Lal gifted an Eight acre Garden in Sikh Chawniath to him. He constructed a Gurudwara in this place nad started living here with his forces. From that time this place was came to be known as Asha Singh Bagh.
