Gurdwara Sri Nagina Ghat Sahib is located on the north bank of Godavari river to the southwest of Takht Sri Hazur Sahib.
Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji was standing at the site of the Gurdwara.
Guru Gobind Singh was watching the river flow and was attended to by some Sikhs.
A rich merchant, proud of his wealth, came and presented a costly Nagina (a precious stone like a pearl usually inset with gold) to Guru Gobind Singh.
Guru Gobind Singh flung the jewel into the river. The merchant was horrified and said that Guru Sahib had failed to evaluate his present and thrown it away like a stone.
Guru Gobind Singh took pity and asked the merchant to take the nagina from the river.
When the merchant entered the water he saw, to his amazement, heaps of glittering jewels, far superior to the one he had offered.
Purged of his false pride, the merchant fell at the Guru Gobind Singh's feet. The merchant understood that Guru Gobind Singh was beyond human riches both in mind and body.
The present building standing on a high plinth comprises a square hall in which Guru Granth Sahib is seated on a canopied palaki of white marble, and a smaller square room topped by a dome on the first floor.
It was constructed by Raja Gulab Singh Sethi of Delhi and was completed by his widow in 1968.
