Gurdwara Pathar Sahib, Leh

4.8
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.

  • Having a gurudwara at the third pole is a blessing. Pathar sahib is such a well organised and sucha well maintained gurudwara. you'll find it as a surprise if you didn't knew about this place. There is a history associated with this place, which goes like this. There used to be a demon who used to terrorise people in this are. Guru nanakji heard about the miseries of the people and decided to help them .So he settles down in this area and started praying and preaching the local people. Seeing this, out of rage, the demon threw a huge rock upon Nanakji while he was meditating. The rock melted like wax and there is still the craving as big as the back of a human on the rock. That gurudwara was bulit around that rock. If you have the stamina to climb 300 feets at thsi altitude, you can see the place from where the demon threw that rock.Legend indeed. The beauty of this place is as beautiful as the story and the peace is unequal to any place. We had our snacks and we continued our journey although nowbody wanted to leave this place.
