The Gurudwara is dedicated to the first Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Nanak Sahib who visited this town while he was spreading his teachings across Southern India. The Gurudwara is majestic and is of great significance to the Sikh community from all over the country. There is quite a history to the name of this Gurudwara.
Bidar used to have acute water shortage and digging wells was not getting successful. Even when wells produced water the water was found to be unfit for drinking. Touched by the condition of the people, and while uttering Sat Khartar, he shifted a stone and removed some rubble from the place with his wooden sandal and suddenly, a spring of cool and fresh water that has flowed to this day. This is how the place soon came to be known as Nanak Jhira (Jhira=Stream).
Since it was almost, mid afternoon, I was already quite hungry. Just like other Gurudwaras, this shrine too serves langar to all the devotees who come to worship here. After having the langar, and staying in the Gurudwara for half an hour, I felt refreshed again.
If one is planning, to stay the night in Bidar, they can also stay in the accommodation provided by the Gurudwara.
