There are 3 Historic Sikh Gurdwaras at this site relating to Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji, Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji and Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji located around the beautiful Sarovar Nanaksar.

Gurdwara Sahib Patshahi Pehli

This Gurdwara commemorates the visit of Guru Nanak with Bhai Mardana. Guru Nanak had a dialogue with Siddh Yogis who lived on a nearby mound. At the time Raja Bharthari (Raja of Ujain) was living here and serving the Siddhs.

The Raja was told he had 8 pehra's (1 day) to marry the Rajkumari of Junagarh or the Rajkumari would pass away. Raja Bharthari asked the Siddhs to help him travel but they said there was not enough time.

Raja Bharthari asked Guru Nanak to help and Guru Ji took the Raja to Junagarh in 1 pehra (about 3 hours) so he could get married. Afterwards, Guru Nanak returned with Raja Bharthari and advised him to make this area his home.

In the year 1975 Bhai Darbara Singh of Lopon constructed the main Gurdwara with the help of Sikhs on the site of an old mud hut. The new six storey building is a huge marble floored hall, with the sanctum at the far end.

There was also a Sikh named Jakko who did not like the Raja. The Raja grew angry, however Guru Nanak stepped in and stopped the two from quarreling. The Sikh's face bore marks from the quarreling.

Guru Nanak asked the Sikh to bathe in the pond (now sarovar) nearby and the Sikh was soon feeling better. The Raja was asked by Guru Nanak to continue the spread of Sikhism. A seperate building in the village remembers Baba Bharthari.

Gurdwara Sahib Patshahi Chevin

This Gurdwara marks the site of the camp where Guru Hargobind Ji stayed when he came from Daroli Bhai Ki. Guru Hargobind stayed here for 5 weeks and then travelled to Mehraj.

In the year 1921 Bhai Sunder Singh Bhindrawale constructed the present Gurdwara building, which is located close to Gurdwara Sahib Patshahi Pehli.

Gurdwara Sahib Patshahi Dasvin

Gurdwara Sahib Patshahi Dasvin located on the eastern side of the Nanaksar Sarovar is associated with Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Guru Ji came to Takhtupura on his way from Raikot, Chakar to Dina in January 1705 AD. Guru Gobind Singh is said to have bathed in the Sarovar. Bhai Darbara Singh of Lopon had this building constructed in the year 1962.

The important annual events here are the Prakash diwas of Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji, Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji, Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji and Shaheedi Diwas of Sri Guru Arjan Sahib Ji. In addition, every year a big Jor Mela is organized from 13th to 17th January, which attracts Sangats from all over.
