Gurdwara Sri Shadimarg Sahib is situated near village Pulwama in the Srinagar district.

In 1616, Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji arrived here from Goindwal, Wazirbad and Hamirpur during a tour of Kashmir.

Guru Hargobind sat under a Chinaar tree which still exists at the Gurdwara. The Sangat arrived to seek Guru Sahib's blessings and darshan.

The Sangat brought a bowl of honey along with them to offer as a gift to Guru Hargobind. When the bowl was opened it was full ants. Guru Hargobind asked whether someone else had asked for the honey.

The Sangat explained that on their way here a holy man, named Bhai Katu Shah had asked for the honey but they had refused him as it was a gift for Guru Hargobind.

Guru Hargobind asked for the gift to be taken back to Bhai Katu Shah and offered to him.

While Guru Hargobind was here, emperor Jahangir met Guru Sahib. The two went into the forest with a hunting party.

It is said that when the group became thirsty (near the Gurdwara Sahib) Guru Hargobind hit the ground with his barcha (spear) and a water spring appeared.
