Gateway to Sikhism

 

Gurudwara Chhevin Patshahi, Guru Mangat, Distt Lahore

Once this sacred shrine used to be very close to Lahore Cantonment railway station but no Gulberg, a modern locality of Lahore, has developed around it . Lahore Cantt and Walton railwa station serve this place. Sat Gur Hargobind Ji came here after leaving Mozang. The Gurdwara w beautifully built but it had to suffer vast damage in 1947. It stood as a ruin for many years. In ord to preserve the sanctity of this sacred place a splendid mosque,"Shan-e-Islam" (glory of Islam), h been built here. There is a school with the mosque where the Quran is taught. A dispensary is al working for the welfare of the people. This area is now under Gulberg, police station , earli Mozang was its police station.

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.
