Gurdwara Rajghat Sangat Pahili Patshahi, also known as Gurdwara Rajghat Sahib, is a historical Sikh shrine located in Burhanpur, Madhya Pradesh, India. It holds significant historical importance in Sikhism as it is associated with Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikhism and the first of the ten Sikh Gurus.
The gurdwara is situated on the bank of the Tapti River and marks the place where Guru Nanak Dev Ji visited during his journey to the south. It is believed that Guru Nanak Dev Ji arrived in Burhanpur during his third udasi (travel) in the early 16th century.
According to historical accounts, Guru Nanak Dev Ji stayed in Burhanpur for a few days and held spiritual discourses with the local residents. The local sangat (devotees) were deeply inspired by Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s teachings and his message of unity, equality, and devotion to God.
Gurdwara Rajghat Sahib was established to commemorate Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s visit to Burhanpur. The word “Rajghat” refers to a royal cremation ground, indicating that the gurdwara is built near the place where the mortal remains of Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s followers were cremated.
