Gurudwara Bhai Budhu Da Awa, Lahore
This place is situated at Shalimar
Road near Gulabi Gate (where the Sikh National College stood). It was
earlier the brick klin of Bhai Budhu. Due to the admontition of Bhai Kamliya,
the bricks remained raw. When Bhai Budhu went to Guru Arjan Dev for asking
what to do, the Guru said that he could not alter what had been utterd
by a devout Sikh but assured the Sikh that these bricks would be sold
at the discarded price. So much was the demand of the bricks that all
the raw bricks were sold. To express his gratitude, Bhai Budhu got a Gurdwara
consructed at a place of the klin, out of sheer joy and faith in the Guru.
This Gurdwara was managed for a long time by the Mahants of the Satlani.
In A.D. 1927, when Sikh National College was established, a magnificent
building of this Gurdwara was also erected. This place has been taken
over by the Archives after the partition.
