Gurdwara Dera Sahib is a highly revered Sikh shrine situated at Patthevind village, about 10 km east of Naushahra Panvan in Amritsar District. This is Guru Nanak's ancestral village. The Gurdwara lies inside a high walled enclosure. It is believed that Guru Nanak had sanctified this place with his presence. The Gurdwara has a marble terrace and domed sanctum. During the Bikrami month of Magh, a three-day festival is held here. Nearest railway station and airport are at Amritsar.
