He built a fort and established himself here. During the nineteenth century the headquarters of tahsil were located at Dharmkot but during the later half of the nineteenth century tahsil headquarters were shifted to Zira. At that time the town was located a few miles away from the Grand Trunk Road between the two towns Karial and Jalalabad and was a flourishing trade centre. In 1980 Dharmkot was converted into sub tahsil of Zira Tahsil of Firozpur District but on 5 November 1999 it was transferred to the Moga District. The town has Class III municipal council.

Here Guru Gobind Singh Ji discarded his blue dress of Uch Ka Pir. Till then, very few people know that Uch Ka Pir was none else but the tenth master. Nawab of Sirhind Wazir Khan also got the news about the Guru and consequently directed the Chaudhary to arrest the Guru and send him to Sirhind. A man of steadfast faith Shamir after consulting his brother write back Just as you hold your Pir in high respect, we too are dedicated to the service of our Guru, since he loves all, we cannot carry out your orders and we would beg to be excused.

The Gurdwara Aaduporh is a historical shrine commemorating the visit of Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji. Guru Ji came to the site while riding his horse, where now the present Gurdwara Sahib stands. At this place, Guru Ji met a holyman whose name was Aadu and asked him about the well being of the villagers. Aadu apprised Guru Ji that the village faces acute water problem hence the village development was suffering. On hearing the problem, it so happened that Guru Ji s horse struck on the ground with porh (Horse s hoof) and then water started pouring out of the earth. The water was sweet and in plenty. Thus, Guru Ji blessed the place with adequate water and left for Bilaspur. The historical well is located in the Gurdwara premises.

In that congregation, villagers from nearby place named Jusampura, came to Guru and requested him to bless their village by paying a visit there. Guru Ji expressed his inability, however he told them that he would come to their village as and when possible. Thereafter they went back but interestingly enough, one of the villagers had managed to steal the saddle of Guru s horse. Next day Guru Ji was told about the theft. On the following day Guru Ji went towards their village Jusampura. The villagers extended whole hearted hospitality to Guru and requested forgiveness for the saddle mischief by saying that the man who had taken the saddle was mad. When Guru noticed that the saddle thief had returned the saddle back without one of its pedas (gold ring), he expressed his unhappiness over the thief s behaviour. Leaving the place Guru blessed the villagers for their prosperity. Guru also changed the name of the village Jusampura to Himmatpura. Badhni Kalan On 21 December 2001 Badhni Kalan was formed as a new subtahsil within Nihalsinghwala Tahsil of Moga District. As per 2001 Census, the population of the town was 6,366.The main exports of this town are wheat, paddy and cotton. The villages comprising this ilaka were formerly held by Rai of Raikot. They appear to have been part of pargana Tihara. The zamindars were Dhariwal Jats. A daughter of one Mehr Mitha of this tribe was married to the Emperor Akbar. On her father he conferred the title of Mian and gave him a jagir of 120 villages, of which Kangar was the centre. On the fall of the Empire, the Chiefs of Patiala and Nabha despoiled the Mian family of a great part of their possessions. The remainder, known as ilaka Badhni, was seized by Ranjit Singh and given by him to his mother-in-law, Sada Kaur, who was the daughter of a zamindar of Raoki in the same ilaka. The descendants of Mehr Mitha, though they were never converted to Muhamadanism, still retain the title of Mian. A few acres of land are all that now remains to them of their former possessions. The fort of Badhni was built by Mian Himmat Khan, the descendant of this family. During British period Badhni was district headquarter but in 1847 Badhni District was broken up and its areas were added to the Firozpur District which also included Dharmkot, Kot Isa Khan, Badhni, etc.
