Sultanpur Lodhi is special in many ways for Sikhs all over the world.
Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji visited his sister Bebe Nanki who lived at Sultanpur Lodhi and went on to live here for 14 years, before disappearing into the Holy Kali Bein river one day. He emerged after three days, at the spot where Gurdwara Sant Ghat stands today, and pronounced “Dhur Ki Bani” (also known as Japji Sahib), which is considered the essence of Sikh faith today.
The area has continued to remain prosperous religiously, economically and socially, with people of many different religions living side by side. The sacred site is home to several historic Gurudwaras, closely linked to the Guru’s life.
Stay right in the thick of things!
Our camp is between two historical gurudwaras – Gurudawara Shri Ber Sahib & Gurudwara Sant Ghat Sahib, where all the festivities will take place. It also shares a common wall with Nirmal Kuteya, run and managed by Padam Shri Sant Seechewal, who has worked closely with the local community for many years – including cleaning up the Beins river, providing education for the villagers and sports facilities for the youth.
How to get there?
Sultanpur Lodhi is located about 75 kms from Amritsar and 48 kms from Jallandhar. During the festival, private vehicles will not be allowed inside Sultanpur Lodhi. We will provide vehicles to transfer guests. If you are arriving by flight, we suggest the Amritsar airport.
