Gurudwara Rori Sahib

Gurudwara Rori Sahib

Gurudwara Rori Sahib, half-a-kilometre northwest of the town, marks the place where once Guru Nanak Dev, probably after the pillage of Eminabad by Babar in 1521, had to stay on a bed of broken stones (rori in Pun jabi). Its central building is a three-storey imposing structure of cut brick work and is pyramidal in design with a rectangular hall adjoining it on one side and a sarovar on the other. There is another separate domed room with a circumambulatory verandah. Eminabad before Partition was known for its week-long Baisakhi fair which included largely attended congregational gatherings of the Sikhs in Gurudwara Rori Sahib as well as the usual fun and a cattle fair.

Eminabad is a famous town of Gujranwala district. Gurdwara Rod Sahib is located by a metalled road one and a half kilometer from the town. Jagat Guru Nanak Sahib had stayed on the seat of pebbles at this place and it was from here that he was taken as a prisoner by the invading armies of Babar, in Samvat 1578.
An imposing Gurdwara has been built over the place. A large pond and other buildings make it more graceful. A large estate worth Rs.5000 per annum and 9 squares of agricultural land is endowed to the Gurdwara from the era of Maharaja Ranjit Singh . Visakhi and Kattak Puranmashi festivals used to be held in the past, only Visakhi festival is held now where people from Gujranwala and its adjoining areas participate with fanfare.

Gurudwara Guru Ka Lahore

Gurudwara Shri Guru Ka Lahore is situated in the village Basantpur in Billaspur Distt. of Himachal Pardesh. Its situated on the border of Himachal Pardesh only 12 km from Shri Anandpur Sahib. Bhai Hari Jas ji father of Mata Jeeto Ji came to Chak Nanaki ( Shri Anandpur Sahib) for getting Marriage fixed up with Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji (Engagemenimet had already been done during the life time of Shri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji) But the elders didn’t agreed on barats going to lahore. So 10th sikh guru Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji proposed that we shall create lahore here and Mata Jeeto Ji’s family may come here and marriage ceremony may take place. Later a little Lahore was setup which exactly resembled to the nine Bazaars of lahore in village Basantnagar. And finally Guru Sahib’s marriage was performed here.

There are few gurudwaras around the main gurudwara :

1) Gurdwara Anand Karaj Sthan Patshahi Dasvin – The gurudwara represents the spot where the marriage was performed. Its present building, a square hall with the domed sanctum over its middle, was constructed by Sant Seva Singh Anandgarhwale during the 1960s.

2) Gurdwara Triveni Sahib – Enclosing a spring formerly called Karpa (lit. spear) Baoli was created, according to popular legend, by the Guru with a blow of his spear. It is a domed square hall with a pavilion over the spring in front of the hall.

3) Gurdwara Paur Sahib – A small domed room with a verandah in front, near another spring is also based on a legend similar to the one related to Triveni Sahib. In this case the spring is said to have been caused by the Guru’s horse stamping its paur (hoof).

4) Gurdwara Sehra Sahib – One kilometer south of Guru ka Lahore in Bilaspur is located at the spot where Guru Gobind Singh halted for a short time on his way to his marriage at Guru ka Lahore. According to tradition the Guru donned his sehra (bridegroom’s floral headband) here.
