Gurdwara Pathar Sahib, Leh

4.7
See an impressive, colorful, and intriguing place of worship at Gurdwara Pathar Sahib. Located at the spot where a demon reportedly attacked Guru Nanak, founder of the Sikh religion, the sahib centers around a rock that the demon threw at the guru. Meditating at the time, the Guru's powers made the rock as soft as wax, and today it bears an impression from where the demon tried to kick it. The site tells the interesting legend that inspired it, and the story of collaboration between army officials, Buddhists, and local sikhs that brought it about in the late 1970s. Prepare for high altitudes and cold weather in winter. Plan my Leh trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
