Gateway to Sikhism

 

Gurudwara Chota Nankiana Hujra Shah Muqeem, Okara

This sacred shrine is situated on the road leading to Bonga Awan from Hujra Shah Muqeem and is exactly one km from the city. Sat Guru Nanak Dev Ji walked to this place fiom Manak Deke. Once it was a beautiful Guruasthan but now their are only fields. Even now the people know it by the name of Chota Nankiana. 9.5 Ghumaon of land is in the name of this Gurdwara in this village. Beside this Gurdwara Sahib owns land in a number of other villages. Fairs used to be held in Assu and Kattak but now a banyan tree and well stand as a reminder of the by gone day.

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.
