Gurudwara Nanaksar at Jhang

This sacred shrine of Jagat Guru Nanak Dev Ji is on Toba road outside Jhang. Buses or mini buses going to this place from Jhang are easily available. Its bus stop is on the bridge after Bagha Wala. From the bus stop one has to walk upstream along the canal.
A Gurdwara was built by the followers on the mound where Sat Gur Dev Ji had stayed. A primary school is housed in the Gurdwara now. Refugees from Jullundher and Hoshiarpur are settled in the Langar Hall, residing room and other buildings.
The building of Gurdwara is spacious and imposing with a beautiful tank on its right. The complex is in custody of Waqf Board but without proper care and maintenance.
