Gurudwara Nanak Sahib at Dinga Distt Gujrat
Dinga is a very famous town of tehsil Kharian (Gujrat district). Jagat Guru Nanak Dev Ji had visited the place. A shrine called Nanak Sar had been built outside the town near Mandi Bahauddin road. It has now collapsed. Now there is a bus stand at this site. The well which provides water to the the tank on the other side of the wall coustructed along the road, is in the field and reminds of the by gone days.
When Jagat Guru Nanak Dev Ji set foot here a Hindu ascetic had set up a drama. He made public announcement to the beat of drum that he would meditate for forty days without eating. Gur Dev Ji stopped the public announcement. When the ascetic completed his 40 days, he fainted when he witnessed that none had come to,see him. Then Guru Dev Ji announced to the beat of drum that this ascetic was lying that he had spent forty days without food as he had been feeding himself with his ego and without destroying it no one can be a Jogi, soofi, sant or faqir.
