Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Dear Sangat Ji, I came across this person the other day at a local Gurdwara and he showcased his visit to Nepal. They found three handwritten saroops of Maharaj and one of the saroops has 1542 angs if I can remember correctly. Gurbani upto 1430 Angs and rest mentions the lives of Guru Sahib, dates, etc. I request everyone to checkout their website that has a lot more about their visit. Here's the link: www.sgndssi.com It really touched me and made me feel like I should visit the place soon. VJKK VJKF!
With the historical "khuhi" (well) at a gurdwara in Kathmandu finally cleaned, efforts are now underway to restore the wooden structure of Gurdwara Nanak Math that has been raised on the site believed to be visited by the founder of Sikhism in 1516. The gurdwara is situated on the banks of the Vishnumati river. The Sarbat Da Bhala Charitable Trust headed by Dubai-based businessman SP Singh Oberoi has undertaken the kar sewa of all the three gurdwaras in Nepal with the help of local Sikhs. Oberoi discovered the gurdwara structure during one of his Kathmandu visits. He took up the issue of its restoration with the Nepal Prime Minister in November last year. "We have been carrying out the kar sewa of a 27-ft deep historical well in another gurdwara. Interestingly, after cleaning, inscriptions of Mool Mantra surfaced on the walls of the well in one of the three gurdwaras in Kathmandu," he claimed. "The Nepal Prime Minister has assured us all possible help towards the ongoing restoration of the structure. He would be looking into possibilities of retrieving the shrine's vacant land," said Oberoi. He said the trust headed by him was had also undertaken the construction of a langar hall (community kitchen) in the gurdwara premises as well as that of 100-room inn for Sikh pilgrims.
