An amazing history of this Gurudwara Pathar Sahib, (Pathar means stone) as seen in the picture.. 

The legend goes...during the period of 1515-18 when Guru Nanak was returning to Punjab through Srinagar,he had rested at this place. During that time, a wicked demon lived in this area The people prayed to the Almighty for help. It is said that Guru Nanak heard their woes and came to their aid. The locals called him Nanak Lama. Seeing this the demon got into a rage and decided to kill Guru Nanak Dev.

He pushed a large pathar (boulder), down from the hilltop to kill the Guru. The boulder rumbled down the hillside, but when it touched the Guru's body, it softened like warm wax and came to a halt against Guru Nanak's back. The Guru kept on meditating unhurt and undisturbed. Thinking that the Guru had been killed, the demon came down and was taken aback to see the Guru deep in meditation. In anger, he tried to push the boulder with his right foot, but the pathar being soft as warm wax, his foot got embedded in it. Pulling his foot from the boulder the demon was dumfounded and realised his own powerlessness in comparison to the spiritual power of the great Guru.

This pathar pushed down by the demon, with the imprint of the body of Guru Nanak Dev and the footprint of the demon, is at present on display in Gurdwara Pathar Sahib and is sacred and offered prayers.
