Gurudwara Ber Sahib



Gurudwara Ber Sahib is located in Sultanpur Lodhi in the district of Kapurthala in Punjab. It is situated at convenient distance from both Jalandhar and Amritsar, which are nearly 36 km and 60 km respectively. This Gurudwara occupies a prominent place among the various places of worship of Sikhs as it is associated with Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of the Sikh religion.

It is believed that Guru Nanak Dev got enlightenment here and composed Sukhmani Sahib. One day Guru Nanak went for bathing in the river Bein, early in the morning and vanished in the waters of the river. He returned after three days after his communion with God. After returning from his Holy Communion, he was the enlightened Guru, who took the mission to preach and spread the religion of Sikhism.

The first prophet of Sikhism, Guru Nanak Dev, had planted a seedling of Ber or jujube tree. The seedling planted by Guru Nanak can be seen even today which has grown into a large tree. From Sultanpur Lodhi, Guru Nanak ventured on a number of long journeys for the purpose of spreading the preaching of Sikhism. In the Sikh tradition these long preaching journeys are referred to as 'Udasis'. The Sikh history is incomplete without the mention of Gurudwara Ber Sahib.
