Associated with - Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji

Sikh Artifacts - None

Sarovar - None

Sarai - None

Sahowal railway station comes after Uggoki while traveling from Sialkot to Sambrial. It is also a bus stop.

The village is about 4 km southwest of it. This is a large village and is divided into two parts.

Sri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji's Gurdwara is about half kilometer inside the village on the eastern side. The building is built like a hindu temple and that is why people call it as 'Nanak Mandir'.

Note: The 'mandir' would have been due to the udasi sadhu influence. This is why Sikhs need to learn from the teachings of the Guru's and discard hindu traditions and influences that have crept in over time.

The Parkashasthan is inside this building (with a spire) while there are many residential rooms in a haveli (mansion) like building. Refugees are setted in these rooms now.

Guru Nanak came here from Sialkot and stayed for seven days. There was a pond covering 25 Ghumaons at this place in those days. This Gurdwara is inside that sarovar. Udasi sadhus were the caretakers. No land or estate is endowed to this Gurdwara. At present the building is in good condition but nothing can be said about the future.
