Gurudwara Kair Sahib at Jai Sukh Wala, District Mandi Bahauddin


Mandi Bahauddin is the leading town of district. The sacred shrine of Jagat Guru Nanak Ji is in village Jai Sukh Wala which is located on the main road going from Mandi-Bahauddin to Marala. The Jai Sukh wala is within the jurisdiction of P.S. & Tehsil Mandi-Bahauddin.eJagat Guru Ji arrived in this village from Dinga at a time when an annoyed mystic wanted to punish the villagers with his curse. Guru Ji prevailed upon him to abandon it and taught him that the right to punish lies in the domain of God. Bhai Bhag, the grandson of this mystic, led a simple and fair life. His grave is displaying its beauty in the cool shade of a tree on the other side of the tank of Gurdwara.
