Nanded city is famous for Gurudwara. Guru Gobind Singh, the guru of the Sikhs attained martyrdom in Nanded hence a Gurudwara was built here.

We reached in evening around 5PM. I was amazed to see well-built efficient 4 lane entry and exit points for Nanded. Within few minutes of crossing new bridge we were in the heart of the city. After checking in Ramakrishna hotel we relaxed for few hours.

We proceeded to Gurudwara which was close by around 2 kms from our hotel.

The whole place was amazingly lit in soft lights and looks magical in evenings. It was extremely clean and all the friendly security guard assisted visitors. Even though there were more that 3-4 thousand people at least there was absolutely no chaos.



Worth watching was gold painted interiors of Gurduwara.








The entrance door from inside looked astounding.









After quick darshan we had the Prasad we preceded for the laser show which was supposed to be in the garden just few minutes behind the Gurudwara. Unfortunately it was closed that day due to technical snag.

But the garden was very beautiful will colourful fountains and soft lighting. Very wll maintained and truly worth visit.



After a hearty dinner, we hit the bed by 10 after an eventful day! Next day after quick Toast and Coffe we headed for Kandhar. It seems Nanded has more than 30 Guridwaras. The ghat was just waking up and looked fresh and inviting from the bridge.
