Gurudwara Khadur Sahib

Khadur Sahib close to Goindwal, is the sacred village where the second Guru Angad propagated the message of God, for many years. A grand Gurudwara Khaddi Sahib, has been constructed here, in memory of Guru Amar Das. The spot where the Gurudwara stands today, was located a knaddi (loom) of a cloth weaver. One dark night Guru Amar Das stumbled into a weaver pit, while carrying a pitcher of water on his head. He was fetching water from river Beas at a distance of 10 km, for his Guru Sri Angad Dev. Notwithstanding his fall, he succeeded in saving the water filled pitcher. The noise of the fall awakened the weaver who suspected a thief. When the weaver’s wife heard a voice uttering ‘Japji’ she remarked that there was no thief but poor, homeless Amar. When the incident came to the notice of Guru Angad, he was pleased to observe, ‘Amar Das was not homeless and lowly. He shall be the home of the homeless, and honour of the unhonoured, the strength of the strengthless, the support of the unsupported, the shelter of the shelterless, the protector of the unprotected, and the emancipator of the captives.
Guru Angad then formally held the investiture ceremony, appointed Guru Amar Das as his successor and the third Guru. There are two other Gurdwaras namely Thara Sahib and Killa Sahib located. at Khadur Sahib associated with Guru Amar Dasji. Gurudwara Thara Sahib, stands on the spot where Guru Amar Das received tilak (anointment) as Guru from the blessed hands of Baba Budhaji who performed Tilak ceremonies of five Sikh Gurus. He was also the first head priest of the Golden Temple. Gurudwara Killa Sahib is located where Guru Amar Das used to place his pitcher full of water for a moment’s respite, from fatigue of the long tiring walk.
