||Gurudwara Almast Sahib
Gurudwara Baba Al Mast Sahib JI is
constructed in the memory of Baba Almast Sahib Ji.
In the time of the Sixth Guru Sri Hargobind Sahib Ji
a Sikh called Almast used to serve this shrine under the
Pipal tree, sanctified by the Guru's visit.
He was pestered by Gorakh Panthis to vacate the place
as they wanted to re-establish their centre there. He had been
expelled from his shrine by the Jogis who had also burnt the
sacred pipal tree under which Guru Nanak Dev Ji had held debate with
the followers of Gorakh Nath.
On account of the troubles of Baba Al Mast Sahib JI
the Sixth Guru Sri Hargobind Sahib Ji decided to visit Nanakmata , taking
with him a troop of his armed retainers. The Jogis, in order to terrify
him, made a show of their supernatural powers, but could produce no
effect on the Guru, and thus retreated.
Guru Ji took the possession of this place again and
restored it as Sikh shrine. Guru Ji sprinkled saffron on the pipal
tree which came back to its full bloom.
