Gurdwara Sri Hira Ghat Sahib stands on the northern bank of the river Godavari about 9 km northeast of Nanded town. This site is where Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji first set up camp on arrival at Nanded.

Emperor Bahadur Shah met Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji here and presented Guru Ji with a hira (diamond). Guru Gobind Singh threw the hira into the river. Bahadur Shah felt offended, he thought that being a faqir the Guru did not know the value of the stone.

Guru Gobind Singh invited the emperor to look into the water. The emperor did so and was astonished to see the river bed was full of diamonds even more precious than the one given to Guru Gobind Singh. Cleansed of his pride, he bowed at the Guru's feet.

The emperor realized that at the Guru's Darbar there was no value placed on material objects and glittering wealth does not tempt the Sikhs.

This is a great moral for modern Sikhs that place value in gold and other such worthless stones and metals (including those that adorn Gurdwaras).

The Gurdwara is on a high platform approached by over a dozen steps. The building is surrounded by trees and greenery and situated in a pleasant and comfortable location.
