Gateway to Sikhism


Gurudwara Tap Asthan Mai Bhago - Jinwada

  Gurdwara Tap Asthan Mai Bhago - Jinwada village (pronounced Jinvara) is 11 kilometres from Bidar along the Bidar-Barauli-Auradh road. Mai Bhago, the surviving heroine of the battle of Muktsar, who had left Nanded after the passing away of Guru Gobind Singh and came to Nanak Jhira, spent the rest of her saintly life at Jinwada in a house just outside the walls of the fortress of Bala Rao and Rustam Rao, Maratha chiefs in whose release from captivity Guru Gobind Singh had been instrumental. This house was maintained as a holy place after her death. When Nanak Jhira was occupied by Sikhs in 1948, they also acquired this house from its last caretaker, Gulab Rao, and set up Gurdwara Tap Asthan Mai Bhago. It is a simple small room with a verandah in front maintained by the managing committee of Gurdwara Nanak Jhira Sahib, Bidar.

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.
