Gurdwara Pathar Sahib, Leh

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.

  • This shrine(Gurudwara) belongs to Guru Nanak Dev ji and it's a historical place. The arrangement and the total care is taken there by the Indian army. The Sikh army men posted there perform all the religious duties with full respect and sincerity. People from all walks of life and different religions visit this place and seek blessings of Guru Nanak Dev ji.
  • This Gurdwara located on our tour of Sham valley. It was a place with positive vibes and felt nice inside . There was a story attached to this place . Guru Nanak was meditating here and a demon tried to kill him by throwing a huge boulder at him . As soon as the boulder touched him it turned into wax. The demon kicked the boulder in frustration and his leg got stuck in the wax boulder and he asked for forgiveness from the Guru. This boulder is still in the Gurdwara and hence called Pathar ( boulder) Sahib Gurdwara. They also offer tea in langar. One should visit this place, one will not regret it . stop at Gurudwara Pathar Sahib en route to Magnetic Hill is a must for every traveler. The place is laden with history and has a very interesting story about Guru Nanak. I won't spill it out here but do make sure you learn about it when at Pathar Sahib. The Gurudwara looks small from the outside but is huge once you enter. Like every other Gurudwara around the world, they serve meals to everyone irrespective of religion. The food quality and taste also is excellent. Don't miss out on it. You can also volunteer in serving food to people or in the kitchen if you like. The place will instill a sense of calm in you so do spend some time in there. Also, make sure you carry a piece of clothing to cover your head before entering. If you forget to bring one, it is available at the entrance but do not enter without covering your head.
  • Waheguru ji ki fatheh. Very clam and holy place. Every one must visit this holy place.maintaied by our mighty Indian army. Parking along side . Langar is very tasty and blessed with guruji. It's towards shrinagar Highway.they serve hot tea and Prasad through day. It's is very essential when we freeze too cold while visited magnetic hill.
