Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Pehli Patshahi at Alpa Distt Kasur

The village Alpa is in tehsil Chunian of Kasur district. A road from Pattoki leads towards the River Ravi. Halla, a well known town lies on this road and is famous being a dairy farming. Alpa is located at a distance of twelve kilometer from Halla right on the bank of River Ravi. Jagat Guru Nanak Dev Ji arrived in this village from Nankana and stayed for a while. Earlier this shrine was about four kilometers outside village Alpa but now a village called Chota Nanakiana Alpa has been built here. Once upon a time Prakash used to take place here and fair used to be held on Visakhi. Only three rooms stand now which housed a Govt School. These rooms-are now lying vacant. The roofs have caved in. There is a huge estate endowed in the name of this shrine in this as well as in some other villages.

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.
