Gateway to Sikhism

 

Gurudwara Baba Jamait Singh Ji,Kahna Nau Distt, Lahore

This holy shrine is in the town of Kahna Nau located on the Lahore-Ferozpur road. Gurdwara complex is a beautifully built three storeyed building. There is a two storey Langar hall and residential rooms for Sikh pilgrims in front of it. This is now a deserted place. This shrine is looked after by Karyalewale Pir but the facts speak for themselves. People have started encroaching upon it. A Jagir of 500 ghumaon of land and ten shops are endowed to the shrine are in this village.
Baba Jamiat Singh was a notorious thief of his area. Once, while he was getting away after stealing some buffaloes, a pursuit was started. He was likely to be caught red handed. Under the fear of apprehension he in this mind recited the name of Sat Guru and resolved not to steal again. The owner of the buffaloes came close to his cattle but could not identify them. After this incident. Jamiat Singh became a devotee of Guru and passed his whole life reciting the name of Sat Guru.
The construction work of the shrine was completed in Samvat 1942. A fair is a organised every year but lacks luster of the past.

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.
