Gurdwara Mal Ji Sahib
Mal means a shady tree.
Gurdwara Mal ji sahib is associated with the childhood activities of Guru Nanak Dev ji and is located in Nankana Sahib, Pakistan
One day while grazing the cattle, the Guru was taking rest under a shady tree. He went into trance. When the shadows were falling down, his divinely face happened to be covered with the sunshine. A big cobra spread its hood on the very face of the Guru for relieving him from the scorching heat. Rai Bular, the ruler of Talwandi saw this.
A grant building stands at this historical site.
The Rai Bular, thus came to realise the divine personality of the Guru and became his disciple from that very day. He made it clear to Mehta Kalu that he should not take the former as merely his son but a revered holy prophet.
This place is presently situated amidst the thick population of Nankana Sahib.
After partition, Sri Guru Granth Sahib has not been ceremoniously opened anyhow a portrait of the Guru is placed at the sanctorum, where the pilgrims pay a visit. A vana tree immortalises the historical place.
This Gurudwara was first built by Diwan Kaura Mal and renovated by Maharaja Ranjit Singh.
