Gurdwara Sri Mata Sahib Nanded, also on the northern river bank is half a kilometre southeast of Gurdwara Hira Ghat.
It marks the place where tents were pitched for Mata Sahib Kaur, who had accompanied Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji during his journey to the south.
While Guru Gobind Singh stayed at Hira Ghat, the langar which was supervised by Mata Sahib was established here. Guru Gobind Singh and other Sikhs would come here to have langar. Subsequently the langar was looked after by Baba Nidhan Singh.
The tradition is still kept alive by serving the midday meal to Sikhs visiting various Gurdwaras and is run by the Nihangs under the overall control of Gurdwara Board Takht Sachkhand.
The Gurdwara building, which has the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, was constructed in 1976-77. About 250 acres of land, partly arable, are owned by the Gurdwara.
