2. Gurudwara Pathar Sahib- It was constructed in the memory of Guru Nanak.
It was then late afternoon and we headed to Pathar Sahib Gurdwara. During his lifetime Guru Nanak travelled to many distant places and one such place was Tibet. I would request you to visit the Temple to understand the significance of the Gurdwara which is serviced and maintained by the Indian Army. We even had the opportunity to have the Langar in form of Lunch over there. It was late afternoon and we were at the fad end of our trip. We also pit stop at the Magnetic Hill (which is not magnetic anymore) and then the rest of the evening was spent in the local markets shopping where everyone was seen looking for weigh machines and re-balancing the luggage as per the flight norms.
After that, we went to Gurudwara Shri Pathar Sahib. Having Kadha prashad at such higher altitude was such a delight. Not willing to miss out on the adventure quotient, we hiked till the Chardi Kala spot opposite the Gurudwara.
This is a Gurudwara almost 25kms before reaching Leh. It is managed and maintained by the Army and holds a special significance for both the tourists and the localites. The Gurudwara Patthar Sahib langar provided to the worshipers is definitely something to look for as it full of love and seva-bhav for the people.
