Gurudwara Nagina Ghat Sahib stands on the bank of Godavari
river, about 400 mtrs., southwest of Sachkhand Sri Hazur Sahib. According
to a folklore, a rich merchant went to Guru Gobind Singh ji while he was watching
the river flow. Proud of his wealth, he presented a nagina (precious stone set in
gold) to the Guru, who took it and casually threw it in the river. The merchant
bore a look as if pitying the Guru that he did not understand the value of the nagina.
Guru ji read his thoughts and bade him to take out his nagina from the river if
that was so valuable. It is said that when the devotee entered into the river, to
his surprise, the river bed was full of precious stones all around. Purged of his
false pride, the merchant fell at the Guru's feet.
The present building stands on a high plinth which comprises of a square hall in
which Guru Granth Sahib ji is seated on a canopied palaki of white marble and a
smaller square room topped by a dome on the first floor.
Its construction was undertaken by Raja Gulab Singh
Sethi of Delhi and was completed by his widow in 1968.
