Gurudwara Shri Pathar Sahib, Leh

See an impressive, colorful, and intriguing place of worship at Gurudwara Shri Pathar Sahib. Located at the spot where a demon reportedly attacked Guru Nanak, founder of the Sikh religion, the sahib centers around a rock that the demon threw at the guru. Meditating at the time, the Guru's powers made the rock as soft as wax, and today it bears an impression from where the demon tried to kick it. The site tells the interesting legend that inspired it, and the story of collaboration between army officials, Buddhists, and local sikhs that brought it about in the late 1970s. Prepare for high altitudes and cold weather in winter. Plan my Leh trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • The legend of this Sikh temple goes like this. The first Sikh guru Guru Nanak Dev was medidating when a daemon threw a big boulder down a hill towards the guru. It was as if the rock turned into wax, and there is an impression of the guru's back on the rock. Folk tales aside, this is a very calm place. This is maintained by the Indian Army and is very clean.
  • Anyone who's spiritually minded will love to be here. Even those who aren't will enjoy coming here. It's a Gurudwara in the middle of nowhere with a round the clock tea langar service being taken care of by the Indian Army.
