about gurdwara pathar sahib

In the land of Buddhism and beautiful serene monasteries, the appearance of a Gurudwara on the Leh-Nimu road will make you peer closely to ensure you are seeing right. Steeped in mythology, Gurudwara Pathar Sahib was built in 1517 to commemorate Guru Nanak Devji's visit, founder Guru of Sikhism. In fact, Guru Nanak Dev is revered by Buddhists who regard him as a saint. 

Steeped in faith and legends, impressions on the large rock, enshrined in the gurudwara and covered by a holy cloth, are believed to be the imprint of Guru Nanak Devji's shoulders, head, back as well as foot, and is revered by Sikhs and local Lamas. The Gurudwara was built and is maintained by the Indian Army. Right at the entrance of the Gurudwara, on a plain white board, are listed the Mool Mantra, root verse, from Guru Granth Sahib. Upon attaining enlightenment, Guru Nanak Devji's first utterance was the Mool Mantra and it essentially encapsulates Sikhism's entire theology.
