Set on the Leh-Kargil road, around 23 km from Leh, Pathar Sahib Gurdwara invites many tourists and pilgrims. Built in 1517, it serves an evidence of Guru Nanak’s visit to the Ladakh. Legend believed that Guru Nanak, during his journey to Ladakh was attacked by a wicked demon when meditating by pushing a huge boulder from the hilltop.

But the boulder upon touching Guruji’s body became softened like warm wax. Failed to harm Guru Nanak, the demon realized his mistakes and asked for forgiveness. The demon also promised to serve people and lead a life of a noble person. Since then, the rock is preserved and worshipped by the local residents and they called Guruji as Nanak Lama.

During 1965 road construction, Indian Army failed to remove the rock and hearing the story of Nanak Lama, built the Gurdwara and is still maintained by them.
