Review №1

At Sarovar; The Holiest pool!Gurdwara Janam Asthan referred to birth place of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder & first Guru of Sikhism, (15 April 1469 – 22 September 1539) was born in Rāi Bhoi Kī Talvaṇḍī, Present day NankanaSahib, Punjab, Pakistan, approx 75 kilometres from Lahore. Sikhs around the world celebrate Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birth on the Pooranmashi (full moon) day in the Lunar month of Katak (October-November).Quote: Even Kings & Emperors with Heaps of Wealth & Vast Dominion cannot compare with an Ant filled with the love of God.Facts1. From an early age, it was evident that Nanak was an extraordinary child, distinguished by his divine grace. Growing up, he refused to take part in traditional religious rituals, & often spoke out against several societal practices.2. He meditated & sang hymns accompanied by Bhai Mardana on the rabab (a stringed instrument). During one of those early mornings while bathing in “Vain Nadi” (a small river), Guru Nanak heard God‘s call to dedicate himself completely to the service of humanity. He then began the next stage of his life, to preach his unique doctrine (Sikhi) to the entire world.3. For the next 30 years, accompanied by Bhai Mardana, Guru Nanak undertook four major spiritual journeys, running across India, South Asia, Tibet & Arabia, covering about 30,000 kilometers.4. In the later years, Guru ji settled down at the township of Kartarpur (creators town), on the banks of river Ravi in Punjab. He donned the robes of a peasant, earning his own honest living by cultivating the lands. Followers came from near and far to listen to the Master.5. He introduced the institution of Langar (free communal kitchen) at Kartarpur, establishing the basic equality of all people regardless of their social and economic status.6. In the year 1539, Guru Ji, after having tested his own two sons & some followers, installed Bhai Lehna ji (Guru Angad Dev Ji) as the Second Nanak, & after a few days passed into Sach khand.7. Guru Nanaks writings, in the form of 974 spiritual hymns comprising the Japji Sahib, Asa di Var, Bara Mah, Sidh Gosht & Dakhni Onkar were incorporated in the scripture Guru Granth Sahib by the fifth Guru Arjan Dev ji.

Review №63

The township was founded by Rai Bhoi, a rich landlord Rajput Muslim and thus was known as Rai-Bhoi-Di-Talwandi. His great-grand son Rai Bular Bhatti, renamed it as Nankana Sahib after the birth of Guru Nanak.[citation needed] The Gurdwara Nankana Sahib, originally constructed in around 1600 CE was renovated in 1819–20 CE by Gian-Punjab Maharaja Jassa Singh Ramgarhia The Sikh Conference of Panjab, Jammu and Kashmir, Peshawar, Kangra and Hazara.[citation needed]During the Akali movement, on 20 February 1921, Narain Das, the Udasi mahant (clergy) of the gurdwara at Nankana Sahib, ordered his men to fire on Akali protesters, leading to the Nankana massacre. The firing was widely condemned, and an agitation was launched until the control of this historic Janam Asthan Gurdwara was restored to the Sikhs. Again in the 1930s and 40s the Sikhs added more buildings and more architectural design.Migration between India and Pakistan was continuous before independence. By the 1940s Western Punjab was predominantly Muslim and supported the Muslim League and Pakistan Movement. After independence in August 1947, the minority Sikhs and Hindus migrated to India while the Muslim refugees from India settled in the Western Punjab and across Pakistan.Nankana Sahib and it surroundings were formerly a tehsil of Sheikhupura District. In May 2005, the provincial government raised the status of Nankana Sahib to a district[8] as a way of promoting development in the area. The present status is District Nankana Sahib has three tehsils: Nankana Sahib, Shah Kot, and Sangla Hill. Before December 2008, District Nankana Sahib also included Safdarabad Tehsil.There are plans to construct a 100 acres (40 ha) university as well as hospitals and health care facilities by the district government with mutual interest of local communities and family of Rai Bular.In 2007, the Pakistan government announced a plan to set up a university on Sikh religion and culture at Nankana Sahib, the birthplace of Guru Nanak. Chairman of Pakistans Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB), Gen (R) Zulfikar Ali Khan, said that The international Guru Nanak University planned at Nankana Sahib would have the best architecture, curricula and research centre on Sikh religion and culture,
