Sikh Heritage in Pakistan:

Pakistan is proud to be cradle of Sikh heritage. After Mughals downfall in Indian sub-continent the Sikhs took over India and ruled here for about two decades and during their era there were lot of new additions into the Indian history which are quite visible if we concentrate a little on it. There are endless monuments, havelis, forts and Gurdwaras which are now part of the major landmarks of Pakistan.

Jamrud fort is one of the old forts built by Sikhs, the fort at the main gateway to India (Khyber Pass) which was known as the first defense for India. There are also other forts in Shabqadar, Lockhart, Balahisar fort, fort in Bara, Michni, Bannu, Dera Ismail Khan, Haripur, Mansehra and Oghi. Some of the Sikh ruins at Khairabad, AkoraKhattak and Jehangira forts are still to be explored which were built by Sikhs.

One can also witness the famed March 14, 1823 battle of Nowshera and located Samadh of BhaiPhoola Singh Akali, a general of the Sikh army who fell in the battle and was cremated on the site located near the northern bank of Kabul river at PirSabak.

Pilgrimage is very common to most major religions of the world. The Sikhs, in their thousands, visit Pakistan each year to celebrate the birth anniversary of their founder, Guru Nanak, at Nankana Sahib, his birthplace.

A Gurdawara is a holy place for Sikhs where they gather for congregational worship. The foundation of first Gurdawara was laid by Guru Nanak in 1521 at Kartarpur Sahib. The meaning of Gurdawara word is ‘the residence of the Guru’. Sikhs believe in Gurus and the book Guru Granth Sahib. In modern times, there is no Guru in the Gurdwara, but the holy book of Sikhs. Sikhs believe that God is present everywhere and one should worship by heart.

Since the Sikh rule lasted for almost a century in the sub-continent there are hundreds of Gurdawaras all over Pakistan but mostly in the Punjab, some of which are very famous such as Nankana Sahib and Panja Sahib. These Gurdwaras are looked after by the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) with collaboration Gurduwara Parbandhak Comittee.
