Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib Patshahi Nauvin Village Khivan Kalan

Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji came to this place from Bhupal during his travels in the Malwa region. A Sikh named Singha Ji devotedly served Guruji. One-day Singha Ji asked for permission from Guruji to go to his neighbor's house where a child was getting engaged and collect his share of sweets. Guruji told him that he need not go anywhere from now, as everyone will send two shares of sweets to him. Singha Ji did not go there and quietly sat next to Guruji. After the marriage ceremony, it so happened that the Chaudary inquired about Singha Ji. He was told that Singha Ji had been busy serving a holy man who had come to the village. The Chaudhary, directed one of his fellows to go to Singha Ji and deliver two shares of sweets at his place. What Guruji said came true. From that day onwards when ever there was any function in the village two shares of sweets were always sent to his home. Big congregations are held during the Prakash Divas of Guru Nanak Dev Ji and Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Shahidi Divas of Guru Arjan Dev Ji and Guru Tegh Bahadur Ji are also organized here. Accommodation: There is a Sarai in the Gurdwara premises, which has 20 rooms with allied facilities. Pilgrims may stay there during their visit to the Gurdwara Sahib.
