Gurudwara Pehli Patshahi Jind Pir, Distt Sukkur
Sukkur is a famous city of Sindh province. It is located on the Lahore-Karachi railway line. The railway station serving this city is called Rohri and a bridge built across the River Indus links the towns of Sukkur and Rohri. Just after crossing the bridge a road goes down at right hand. This road keeps turning along the bridge and reaches Gurdwara Jind Pir. It is a very beautiful Gurdwara. Sat Guru Nanak Dev Ji had graced this place during his third itinerary. It was from here that he visited Sadhu Bela, an islet in the river Indus. Jhulay Lal Udasi sadhu was its first priest. The shrine is in the possession of Nank anthi Hindus. Prakash of Guru Granth Sahib takes place and the idols are also worshipped here. A lamp lit by the Guru Dev Ji is kept burning round the clock. The pilgrims prostrate before this lamp.
