Gurdwara Nanak Piao
Gurdwara Nanak Piao is dedicated to the first Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Nanak Dev. It is built at the site of the garden where he camped when he visited Delhi in 1505, during the reign of Sultan Sikander Shah Lodhi. The Gurdwara is situated on Rana Pratap Road, in the capital city of India, New Delhi. It is said that people flocked to the revered prophet and offered him, and his bard, Mardana with precious gifts and offerings. Guru Nanak used to distribute all these offerings to the poor and needy. Besides these, he used to offer food and water to the hungry and thirsty. This gave Nanak Piao Gurudwara its name. One can still see the well from which Guru Nanak served water in the shrine.
According to an interesting legend, during Guru Nanak's visit to Delhi, Sikander Lodhi came to know that he had revived a dead elephant and won the admiration of both Hindu and Muslim devotees. Thus, he sent a call to him to revive one of his dead royal elephants, but the Guru refused to do so. The haughty ruler imprisoned him. While in prison, Guru Nanak's kindness and virtuosity won the hearts of the prison officials. During the same time, a great earthquake shook the capital on July 3, 1505 and people thought that it was due to the curse of Nanak, who was imprisoned. Thus, Nanak was released.
