Gurdwara Pathar Sahib, Leh

(4.7/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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 your visit to Gurdwara Pathar Sahib and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Leh vacation builder.

  • Its a religious place in high altitude. This is maintained by the Indian Army. It has a history associated with it. There is a huge Stone (Patthar) which is worshiped and hence the name.

  • Satnam Shri Wahe Guru
  • The Gurudwara is and maintained by the Army. The place is associated with Guru Nanakji’s stay and meditation here in the sixteenth century. Spent some time here and sought blessings of Waheguruji.
