Gurdwara Bal Lila


Gurdwara Bal Lila is associated with Guru Nanak Dev ji and located in Nankana Sahib.

Gurudwara Bal Lila is very near to the Gurdwara Janam Asthan, marks the field where Guru Nanak used to play with other childrens. The Guru in his infancy, used to transport the enlightenment of the Naam to the minds of his friends, while playing with them.

The original holy pond Nanaksar with this Gurdwara was built by Rai Bular, the ruler of Talwandi. Guru Hargobind ji during his visit to the town is said to have enlarged the site. Diwan Kaura Mall, a Hindu noble, after his victory over Multan with the assistance of the Sikhs in 1748, further enlarged this Gurdwara and brick lined two sides of the nearby tank originally got dug by Rai Bular.

During the early 1800s, Maharaja Ranjit Singh had the building renovated and the tank enlarged and properly lined.

The sarovar adjacent to the Gurdwara is lying dried up and the Gurdwara is opened only at the time of visiting to it by the Sikhs. There is no arrangement of Parkash of Guru Granth Sahib. It is only the building which is safe and sound.

The present Gurdwara was reconstructed during the 1930's and 1940's under the supervision of Sant Gurmukh Singh Sevavale.
