Gurdwara Sri Nanakwadi Sahib, also known as Gurdwara Nanak Varhi is a wonderful Sikh Gurdwara located in the heart of Vadodara city that marks the remembrance of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji.

Vadodara, formerly Baroda is the third most-populated city in the State of Gujarat after Ahmedabad and Surat.

It was strategically situated at a junction of the main highways linking Gujarat with Rajputana and the Punjab in the north, Malwa and the Ganga valley in the north-east, Konkan in the south and Khandesh in the south-east.

This was were Guru Nanak and his companion Bhai Mardana stopped and spent some time here in 1515-17, after leaving Baroch. From here they left to travel to Rajasthan.

Gurdwara Sri Nanakwadi Sahib has been built to preserve the memory of Guru Nanak's visit. The single room that has long stood to preserve the memory of his visit has today grown into a huge Gurdwara.

This Gurdwara is believed to have existed since 1517.
