DAY EXCURSION FROM SHEIKHUPURA


After breakfast we drive out to Sheikupura, formerly known as Jahangirabad, Sheikupura which was named after Dara Sheikh the older brother of Emperor Aurangzab. The tour starts with a visit to the glorious Mughal Fort built by Emperor Jahangir who was fond of the area. Afterwards we go to visit Hiran Minaret and the lake; the emperor also constructed an artificial lake to make his hunting visits more pleasing. On the death of his pet deer Manseraj, he constructed a minaret in loving memory of his pet which is the prime attractions of the area. The fort later became residence of Ranjit Shing's one of wives Rani Nakyan and her private quarters are decorated with beautifully preserved frescos depicting court scenes, hunting images of Guru Nanak. Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikh faith, was born here in 1469. The historical Gurudwaras in Nankana Shaib that we will visit are Gurudwara Janam Asthan, Gurudwara Bal Lila, Gurdwara Patti Sahib, Gurudwar Kiara sahib, Gurudwara Mal ji Sahib, Gurudwara Tambu Sahib and Gurudwara Chhevin Patshahi.
