It was a usual weekending when we decided to explore the spirituality of the place known as Gurdwara Sri Guptsar Sahib in Manmad.
Initially we thought our journey by Railways as it was sudden plan we didn't got the confirmed tickets so we planned and headed our journey by bike and believe me it was super fun through bike and it can be said it was blessing in disguise.
Bike trip to Manmad was not that easy but we planned accordingly and made our trip super success.
Manmad is 255kms from Mumbai so completing our journey before the sunrays could really put us down we started our journey at 4.30 Am in the morning on Saturday and by putting stops in between we reached Manmad around 10.00 Am. It is somewhere around 5 hours journey.
Let go and explore some facts of the spiritual place
Gurdwara Sri Guptsar Sahib it is associated with Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
It is said that Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, during his stay at Nanded, secured the release of two Maratha chiefs, Bala Rao and Rustom Rao from the Satara Fort and brought them to Manmad
There was a very dense forest at the place of Gurdwara. Baba Nidhan Singh Ji started karseva for constructing Gurdwara here by clearing the dense forest with the help of Sikhs. A hidden Baodi (well) was found while constructing the Gurdwara. After cleaning the well, it was noticed that the water of the well was divine and sweet. Because of this hidden well (Gupt Kuwan) the Gurdwara is later named as Gurdwara Sri Guptsar Sahib.
Langar is served whole day for everyone one can go take the blessings eat food and rest there.
Place is so peaceful and calm
We took the darshan (blessings) ate kada prasad then we had langar and we took some rest.
Again our plan was to start our journey in some cool and calm atmosphere so we started our back home journey some where around 5.00 am because the road is not appropriate to start driving in the midnight or dark.
We reached Mumbai by 10.00 am on Sunday.
It was super fun road trip.
