Gateway to Sikhism

Gurudwara Chhevin Patshahi, Rasul Nagar Distt Gujranwala


Rasul Nagar is a very historic town which is referred in history by the name of Ram Nagar. It is situated on the left bank of River Chenab in Tehsil Wazirabad of Gujranwala district. A Gurdwara of Sat Gur Hargobind Ji is displaying its splendour inside this town. A small darbar has been built. The top is a beautiful dome and the floor is done in marble. Verses of Garanth Sahib are written on the walls. The right hand door of the Gurdwara opens in a big garden which is a part of this darhar. Sat Gur Hargobind Ji came to this place from Wazirabad and had graced Hafizabad after leaving this place.
The top of the cupola of the shrine was burnt in 1992 when the lightening struck the dome of this darbar during monsoon. Many Gujjar families have settled in the inn of the Gurdwara.
