Gurudwaras in Pakistan

Samadh Alpa at Alpa Distt Kasur

Samadh Alpa at Alpa Distt Kasur

Al pa is a village of district Kasur and it is situated on the bank of the River Ravi. The holy shrine of Sat Guru Nanak Dev Ji, located in this village, is popularly known as "Dharamsala Chota Nanakiana". Before entering the village you will see some mud houses on a small mound. There is a beautiful Samadh placed between these mud houses. It is decorated with portraits of Gurus over which floral patterns have been painted in enchanting colours. It is a beautiful specimen of art. Despite my best efforts I could not get any information about it. The local inhabitants know it as "Alpa Sadhari".
