Gurudwara Nanaksar, Nanded

This sacred place Gurudwara Nanak Sar Sahib is situated 10 km away from Takht Sachkhand Shri Hazoor Abchal Nagar Sahib, Nanded in the south west direction.

One day Bhai Mardana Ji requested ‘Oh! My lord,I am very thirsty. I want water’. Guru Ji in reply ordered him to take up the Rabab (a string instrument) and play upon the “Dhun of Kartar” (Tune of Almighty Lord). Obeying Guru Nanak’s order Bhai Mardanaji started playing upon the Rabab. Suddenly a spring of cool and sweet water appeared. Guru Ji revealed the secret of water, "This pious land belongs to Gods, that’s why the water is so cool and sweet ".

During the course of discussion a leper came and requested Guru Sahib Ji, “Be kind enough to remove my leprosy so i may get rid of this agony”. Guru Sahib gave him a bath under the spring and made him to drink water of the spring. Thus the patient recovered from leprosy by the grace of Guru Ji. He then requested Guru Sahib “Please bestow up on this spring to be a holy Pool (sarovar) so that many people would get rid of sorrows and pains". Guru Ji blessed the spring to be a holy sarovar and said whosoever has not child or is suffering from any disease should take a dip in this sarovar with faith and devotion, his hopes and wishes will be fulfilled.
