Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Baba Gurbaksh Singh Nainakot

There is a big town called Nainankot about 24 kms from Tehsil Shakar Garh. Government Primary School Nainankot is on the eastern side of the village. This school is imparting education in the sacred place of Baba Gurbakhsh Singh (Ram Kanwar) Ji the pride of Baba Budha Ji's descendants. The walls of the mansion-like Gurdwara have collapsed, but the beauty of the Prakashasthan is spell binding even today. The shrine is located in 3 rooms built in a row. The circular building facing it is the samadh of Baba Gurbakhsh Singh which is built on a platform one foot above the ground level. beautifully built to commemorate this incident. In 1935 AD a water tank was constructed by Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee under the leadership of Sardar Bahadur Mahtab Ji. This water tank is 5 feet above the ground level.
There is endowment of 3000 acres of land in the name of this sacred Gurdwara. Prakash does not take place now. Yatrees visit this place and get spiritual satisfaction.

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.
