Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Sri Nankana Sahib Village Kashipur

Gurdwara Sri Nankana Sahib is associated with the first Guru, Guru Nanak Dev ji who came here after having visited Nanak Mata and Nanak Puri. At that time, the Dhela river used to cause havoc in the city by flooding each year. When Guru ji reached this place, the loca people were on the verge of leaving this place for safer grounds. Guru ji told them to be patient and advised them to remain there only. Thereafter, on the riverside, he started singing kirtan. As the kirtan was in progress, the river rose. Guru ji performed the ardas and the river, after touching Guru ji's feet, receded, moved to a distance away from the town. It is said that since then, the river has never flooded the city again. It is also said that earlier the name of the river was Swaran river and that when Guru ji threw a clod (dhela) into the river the name of the river was changed to Dhela river. The birthdays of Guru Nanak Dev ji and Guru Gobind Singh ji, the martyrdom day of Guru Arjun Dev ji and Baisakhi are the main gurpurabs celebrated here. Accomodation : A sarai with 30 rooms has been built over the Langar Hall for the convenience of visitors. Besides this, a state run Kumaon Vikas Mandal Tourist Rest House also provides accomodation but it is at a distance away

The etymology of the term 'gurdwara' is from the words 'Gur (ਗੁਰ)' (a reference to the Sikh Gurus) and 'Dwara (ਦੁਆਰਾ)' (gateway in Gurmukhi), together meaning 'the gateway through which the Guru could be reached'. Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
