Nankana Sahib is a Holy place where the founder of the Sikh religion, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji was born on 15th April, 1469 A.D. The township of Nankana Sahib was earlier known as Raipur. But after the birth of Guru Nanak Ji, its names changed to Nankian Sahib or Nankana Sahib. It is situated at a distance of approximately 90 km on the south west from Lahore, in Pakistan. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji spent his whole childhood in Nankana Sahib.
When he joined a school at Nankana Sahib, the Guru is said to have written fundamentals of education on the wooden takhti to enlighten the people. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji got married on 21st, May 1487 AD to Bibi Sulakhani, daughter of Mulchand Khatri of Batala. It was at Nankana Sahib that he met Bhai Mardana, who was his companion for 47 years, listening to, and singing, the Guru’s gospel. According to Sikh history, Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji at the age of 22 years, in 1491 A.D. went into silence for days together. He did not eat a morsel or utter a word. Towards his adolescence Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji left Nankana Sahib for Sultanpur Lodhi.
At the time of partition, the Sikhs not only lost lives, property and wealth but also lost their loved and revered shrines, which fell on the other side of the border. These Sikh shrines in Pakistan are managed by the board and every year Sikh Jathas visit these shrines on four different occasions. On the occasion of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s birth anniversary about three thousand Sikh devotees from India and all over the world visits Nankana Sahib, every year.
