Gurdwara Pipli Sahib


News of the Sacred enthronement of Sri Guru Arjan Sahib spread around and the devotees eager to have a direct glimpse of Nanak the Fifth set out for Amritsar from distant places. In this spiritual quest the sangat from Kabul was also on its way to Amritsar. On the last day of their journey they were determined to reach the holy presence of the New Guru but could not make it and had to camp few miles away from Sri Harimandir Sahib. The Sangat included the old, the young and the children. Tired and hungry, they now yearned for a blessed vision of the Holy Guru next morning.

Sri Guru Arjan Sahib asked Mata Ganga, to prepare plenty of food with her own hands. Guru Arjan along with Mata Ganga then carried the food and water on their heads barefooted to the camp site. They served the food and water to the tired and hungry sangat. One old man, very much tired, was pressing his own legs. Sri Guru Arjan Sahib with folded hands begged for this service and started pressing the legs of the old man. The whole night the Guru and His wife served the sangat.

Gurdwara Pipli Sahib stands as a Sacred Memorial on this holy spot.

A fair is held here on the occasion of Basant Panchmi (JanuaryFebruary).
