Gurudwara Dera Baba Nanak- Distt. Gurdaspur
At Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur district, Guru Nanak spent last days of his worldly life. This town is situated on the left bank of river Ravi, on the Indo-Pak border. In fact his land was located on both sides of the river. Guru Nanak used to return to this side of the river daily for meditation. He also founded the city of Kartarpur on the right bank of the river. The importance of Kartarpur Gurdwara is that Guru Nanak left for his heavenly abode here at the age of seventy. Now that historical Gurudwara is in Pakistan territory, but it is visible to the naked eye from Dera Baba Nanak, where another Gurdwara was constructed by his devotees to perpetuate his memory. Maharaja Ranjit Singh provided copper guilded throne to the Gurdwara and also covered its canopy with marble. A Chola (cloak) said to have been worn by Guruji during his visit to Mecca and Madina is kept here. Lakhs of people,visit this town every year to have a glimpse of the Chola Sahib,which is displayed for public view. Dera Baba Nanak is only 55 kilometres from Amritsar city and is connected by rail and road. As the railway bridge over river Ravi was destroyed in 1965 Indo-Pak war, train service between Dera Baba Nanak and Sialkot (Pakistan) has been suspended since then. Guru Nanak was a great spiritual Master who gave the message of love and amity.
