waheguru ji kekhalsa, waheguru ji ke fateh

Pyare jio, logically it would be the birthplace of Sahib Siri Guru Nanak dev ji. Hence Nanakana sahib.

However some could also argue according to Aarti, the whole world is the house of Guru, because Naam resonates in every part of it.

waheguru ji kekhalsa, waheguru ji ke fateh

I had heard once that when Sajjan Thag begged for forgiveness at the charan of Guru Nanak Ji, he became a Sikh and ended up building the first Gurdwara. I heard this in a saakhi, of course the Bhai never mentioned where this Gurdwara is. Does anyone know if this is true? and if so, where the Gurdwara Sahib is?

Now on a more practical note...I would have to guess that the first Gurdwara would have to be Goindwal Sahib which was built by Guru Amar Das Ji. Isn't that why it is called Sikhi Da Dhura?

I think it would be Nankana Sahib if you think historically, but physically Im not sure that it was.

officially the oldest guru ghar was baoli sahib in gowindwal i think (i think), set up by guru amar das ji.

or was it where guru angad dev ji was mainly based at.

no come to think of it, the oldest must be in kartarpur where guru nanak dev ji first set up the sikh community.

but these were dharamsalaa's

but when you say "whats the oldest gurdwara" then the answer is the same question with "which guru ghar had the first aadh bir sahib in it" because thats when dharamsalaas turned into "Gurdwaras"

the answer is sri darbar sahib amritsar.

nankhana sahib wasnt made until raja ranjeet singhs time.

I think the first dharmsala was built by Sajjan Thug in Makhndoompura (now Pakistan). The place still exists, though I believe they've made it into a mosque.

So the Bhai I heard the saaki from was right, Sajjan Thag did build a Gurdwara, or dharamshala...which later got turned into a mosque, I guess???...and the place has been verified. Thanks
