Gurdwara Sri Nanak Mata Sahib (Village Nanakmata)

Gurdwara Sri Nanak Mata Sahib is situated between Khatema and Sitarganj on the Khatema - Panipat Road, eighteen kms from Khatema and twelve kms from Sitarganj, in district Udham Singh Nagar.

Gurdwara Sri Nanak Mata Sahib is associated with the first Guru, Guru Nanak Dev ji. However, the sixth Guru, Guru Hargobind Sahib ji also came to this place. Guru Nanak Dev ji came here during his Third Udasi in 1514 A.D

At that time, this place was the abode of the devotees of Guru Gorakhnath and it was called Gorakhmata. The yogis who lived here did not want the local people to become learned enough to challenge their superiority. therefore, by using their occult powers, they successfully exploited the poor people. Guru Nanak Dev ji reached this place and sat for meditation under a pipal tree. The yogis were surprised to see him there as this place was quite inaccessible, especially during the winters. The weather being cold, Bhai Mardana requested the yogis for some fire but was refused. The yogis, instead, taunted him and told him that he should go and ask his Guru who was with him. At this, Guru Nanak Dev ji looked at a pile of firewood nearby and it was instantly lit. The weather suddenly became bad and it began to rain. As a result, the fires lit by the yogis were extinguished but the one lit by Guru ji was not affected at all. The yogis realized their mistake and fell at the feet of the Guru. Next day morning, they all gathered together and came to Guru ji for a religious discussion. They again used their occult powers and tried to lift the pipal tree, under which Guru ji was sitting, out of the ground. When the tree had risen by a few feet, Guru ji simply placed his hand on it and it stopped rising. The same tree can be seen in the Gurdwara compound. Guru ji taught the yogis the path of true meditation and salvation. This place then came to be known as Nanak Mata and became a major centre of the Udasi sect.About a century later, Baba Almast came here and found that the place had again be taken over by Gorakhpanthi yogis. He could not evict them and sent a message for help to the Sixth Guru, Guru Hargobind Sahib. Guru ji immediately came here and restored the place as a Sikh shrine. Thereafter, Baba Almast established a very big religious centre here. The main gurpurabs celebrated here are the birthdays of Guru Nanak Dev ji and Guru Hargobind ji. The festival of Diwali is also celebrated with great fervour. Accomodation : A 100 room sarai, Guru Hargobind Niwas, has been constructed within the gurdwara premises. Of these, 50 rooms have attached bathrooms. Apart from this, a government run rest house, the Kumaon Vikas Nigam Rest House is also located nearby. Educational Institution : A number of educational institutions are run here. These are the Guru Nanak Balika Degree College, affiliated to the Kumaon University. The Guru Nanak Balika Degree Inter College and the Guru Nanak Inter College, both are affiliated to the Uttar Pradesh Education Board. Guru Nanak Primary School is run for boys and girls upto the fifth class. These colleges have about 500 students and hostel accomodation is also provided. Guru Nanak Academy, affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, is also run. It has 800 students and also provides hostel accomodation.

Karsewa Address

Before 1937, this gurdwara was maintained by mahants. A small gurdwara was constructed by the local people. The land for the gurdwara was donated by Nawab Mehndi Ali Khan. Karsewa began in 1975 and a beautiful building has since been constructed. The gurdwara building is magnificent and has marble all over. There is vast open space all around and it is all available for future expansion. The complex consists of the main hall, the langar hall, the parikrama, the sarai, offices etc. A second gurdwara, Gurdwara Patshahi Sixth is also present here. The Pipal tree under which Guru Nanak Dev ji sat can also be seen between the main building and Gurdwara Patshahi Sixth.
