Gurudwara Kiara Sahib Nankana Sahib

Guru Nanak ji used to graze cattle here. It is about 1.5 km from the Guru ji’s Janam Asthan.

One day, while Guru ji was resting under a shady tree, He was immersed in thoughts and the cattle went astray in the fields of a farmer. The clamoring made by the farm owners disturbed the Guru from his trance.

Owners and farmers at the nearby fields got together to complain to Rai Bular. So, Guru ji then drove His cattle back towards his house. On His return, as Guru ji glanced at the fields, they turned green again. By watching this miracle, the Hindus and the Muslims revered the Guru.

This grand Gurdwara was built in that historical field. A boundary wall and a sarovar (holy pond) was built around the whole field.

Before obtaining the management of this Gurdwara by the panth in February 1921, a trio consisting of Mahant Fauja Singh, Mahant Ujjagar Singh and Mahantani Inder Kaur, was managing the affairs of this Gurdwara.

After the partition of 1947, This Gurdwara came under the Pakistan Waqf Board. The holy tank stands dry and Sri Guru Granth Sahib is not opened ceremoniously.
