Gurdwara Rori Sahib (Eminabad)

Gurdwara Rori Sahib is the sacred shrine which marks the site where, according to tradition, Guru Nanak after the destruction of the town had stayed with Bhai Lalo. Here the Guru had to sit and lie on a hard bed of pebbles (small stones) (ror-ree in Punjabi) as alluded to in Bhai Gurdas Varan 1.


When the armies of Babar entered Punjab in 1521, Guru Nanak Dev was present in Eminabad. At the time of capture of Eminabad, many locals were arrested, among whom was Guru Nanak Dev Ji. At the time of the arrest, Guru Nanak was sitting on the pebbles and was busy in his prayers. The Gurdwara stands at the place of the pebbles.


Gurdwara Rori Sahib (32.0475°N 74.2489°E) is located 2 kilometres south-east of present-day Eminabad and one and a half kilometre north-west of the centre of the village called Talab. Eminabad, an old town is about 55 kilometres north of Lahore and 15 kilometres south of Gujranwala and is a famous town of Gujranwala district in West Panjab, Pakistan. It is linked to Grand Trunk Road and Eminabad railway station by four-kilometres stretch of metalled road. This area has three important historical shrines of the Sikhs - Gurdwara Rori Sahib, Gurdwara Chakki Sahib and Gurdwara Khuhi Bhai Lalo.
