Gurudwaras in Pakistan

Gurudwara Guru Kotha, Wazirabad

Gurudwara Guru Kotha, Wazirabad Distt Gujranwala

Wazirabad is a leading town of Gujranwala district and Guru Kotha, the sacred place named after Guru Hargobind Ji, is located in this town on his way back from Kashmir. He stayed at the house of one of his devotees by the name of Bhai Khem Chand Ji. A Gurdwara sahib was built here later. Once it was a beautiful building but its major portion has collapsed now and premises is occupied by refugees. 13 acres of agricultural land is endowed in the name of Gurdwara. A large and beautiful water tank adds to the scenic beauty of Gurdwara. Basant Panchami and Diwali fairs used to be held regularly, Now a mini Visakhi fair is arranged by the Muslims of the town.
