Gurudwara Ber Sahib


Sultanpur Lodi is a sacred Sikh pilgrimage site associated with the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev Ji the 1st Guru of Sikhs, who lived here for 14 years. It is here that he attained 1st Udaasi, disappeared into the waters of the Bein rivulet, and reappeared after three days as the enlightened Guru. His first words were as simple as they were true: 'There is no Hindu, no Mussalman'. The grounds of the Gurdwara Ber Sahib here mark the spot where Guru Nanak Dev Ji entered the rivulet. Maharaja of Kapurthala built Gurdwara here with octagonal pillars, a marble sanctum and stucco designs at the entrance. Gurudwara Sant Ghaat is at about 2 kms from Ber Sahib where Guru Ji emerged after his three-day immersion in the Bein. Other Gurdwaras related with Guru Nanak's life are Bebe Nanaki Ji, Gurdwara Sant Ghat, about 2 kms upstream of Ber Sahib where he emerged from his three-day immersion in the Bein, Hatt Sahib honours the grain store where Guru Nanak was employed; the thirteen weights, used by the Guru to measure provisions are preserved here, Gurdwara Kothri Sahib the prison cell where the Guru Ji was imprisoned under false charges, Guru ka Bagh is where Guru Ji lived with his wife, Sulakhni, and their two sons, Baba Sri Chand Ji and Baba Lakhmi Chand Ji.
