Gurudwara Baba Banda Singh Bahadur, Nowshera

Baba Banda Singh Bahadur

Lachmam Dev was born to Rajput parents in Rajouri. In his early days he shot a doe and the experience led him to become a recluse. During this phase he was given the name Madho Das by a Sadhu but it was only after he met Guru Gobind Singh, lost his wits around him and claimed to be his slave, that he got the name Banda. He went on to become a fearless Khalsa.

The place where Baba Banda would meditate has been turned into a gurdwara. The Gurudwara is situated in Nowshera, enroute Rajouri/Poonch. If you decide to take the Mughal route too, you will surely discover it.
