Gateway to Sikhism


Gurudwara Panjvin Patshahi, Jatri Distt Sheikhpura

This village, called Jatri, is located on the Bhai Pheru-Khunda road a little farther from Balluki Head Works. There used to be the Gurdwara of Sat Guru Arjun Dev Ji in the village which has now vanished, only its inn remains. Sat Guru stayed in the village for a few days in recognition of Bhai Jatri's love.
Even today the Samadh of Bhai Jatri stands in a grove of trees outside the village on the river Ravi side.
