Gurdwara Nangali Sahib

Gurdwara Nangali Sahib is one of the oldest shrines of the Sikhs in Northern India. It is situated about 7 km from Poonch, in the lap of a charming hill on the banks of Drungali Nallah, in Jammu and Kashmir. The pleasant and cool atmosphere of the gurdwara gives the pilgrims peace and relief of mind.

The gurdwara was established in the year 1803 by Thakur Bhai Mela Singh ji, the fourth successor of Sant Bhai Feru Singh ji. In the year 1814, Maharaja Ranjit Singh visited here and was impressed very much. Maharaja Ranjit Singh attached an estate and four villages with the gurdwara.

Gurdwara Nangali Sahib was set to fire in 1947 by the Pakistan supported attacking tribes men. Later it was reconstructed by Mahant Bachitar Singh ji with the donations and efforts of Sangat.

The present complex has round the clock Langar (community kitchen), 70 rooms and gurdwara building. Large congregation is held on Sundays, which is attended by large number of people. Every year on the eve of Baisakhi, the birth (establishment) day of Khalsa, the large function is held here.

Gurdwara Nangali Sahib is approximately 240 km from the Jammu Bus Station. Pilgrims outside state can use railways and air services up to Jammu.
