Gurudwara Nanak Jhira

Gurdwara Nanak Jhira is a sacred place located at Bidar in Bidar District of Karnataka. It is also called Nanak Jhira, where Jhira means a spring of water.

Legend says that Guru Nanak halted here on his way to Sri Lanka. During that period, people of Bidar were suffering from shortage of drinking water. A fountain of cool water rose out from a hill by the spiritual power of Guru Nanak.

The water of the fountain is collected in 'Amrit-Khud', built in white marble. There is a Sikh museum, built in the memory of Guru Tegh Bahadur, depicting the important events of Sikh history through pictures and paintings. The birthday of Guru Nanak and the Hola Mohalla festival are celebrated here. Thousands of Sikhs visits this place every year.
