Dinga is a very well known town of Kharian tehsil (Gujrat district of Pakistan).
Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji visited the place. The Gurdwara, also known as Gurdwara Nanaksar, had been built outside the town near Mandi Bahauddin road.
When Guru Nanak was here, a hindu sadhu caused a drama. The sadhu made a public announcement to the beat of drum saying he would meditate for forty days without eating so the villagers would increase their respect for him. Guru Nanak stopped the public announcement as an unneccessary show.
The sadhu proceeded with his fast and completed his 40 days. When noone came to see him, he fainted in shock as he had been expecting people to tell him how good he was.
Guru Nanak announced that if the sadhu said he had spent 40 days without food he was lying as he had been feeding himself with his ego. Guru Nanak explained that without destroying ego noone can be a yogi, sufi, sant or faqir.
The Gurdwara has now collapsed, now there is a bus stand at this site. The well, which provided water to the tank on the other side of the wall constructed along the road, is in the field and reminds of the days gone by.
