Gurdwara Rori Sahib


Gurdwara Rori Sahib is associated with Guru Nanak Dev ji.

It is located in Eminabad in Gujranwala District.

When the armies of Babar entered Punjab in 1521, Guru Nanak Dev ji was present in Eminabad. At the time of capture of Eminabad, many locals were arrested, among whom was Guru Nanak Dev Ji. At the time of the arrest, Guru Nanak Dev ji was sitting on the pebbles and was busy in his prayers.

The Gurdwara Sahib stands at the place of the pebbles.A large pond and other buildings make it more graceful.

This Gurdwara Sahib was constructed by Maharaja Ranjit Singh ji.

This was the premier Gurdwara of the town. Gurdwara Sahib has three-storey building.

The Gurdwara has large sarovar.

Before Partition, Eminabad 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.

The multi-storeyed building was set on fire by a mob of zealots at the time of partition of the Punjab. The building of the Gurdwara was falling apart but the Government of Pakistan constructed its boundary wall.

Vaisakhi and Kattak Puranmashi festivals used to be held in the past but only Vaisakhi festival is held now where people from Gujranwala and its adjoining areas participate with fanfare.
