Gurudwara Pehli Patshahi Tilganji Sahib, Quetta

Quetta is the capital of Baluchistan province. The Gurdwara of Jagat Guru Nanak Dev Ji called Tilgan,ji Sahib is located at Masjid road of the city. Sat Guru graced this city during his third itinerary. When the Guru Ji arrived here devotees came to see him. He honoured the group of devotees by distributing Til (sesame) as parshad (offering) and hence this pious Gurdwara was named as Tilganji. Government Sandeman school is functioning inside this holy shrine. A new school building has been constructed on the vacant land of the Gurdwara. The main gate of Gurdwara takes after a mosque and inside there is a beautiful and strong building with dome. The inn for the stay of the visitors, dining hall and Prakashasthan are very beautiful. Sangat of Quetta has filed a low suit in lower court to get back the possession of the Gurdwara.

Thereafter, all Sikh places of worship came to be known as gurdwaras.
