Lakhpat - Sikh Pilgrimage In Kutch
Lakhpat has religious significance for Sikhs. Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, believed to have camped here on his journey to Mecca. The site later became a Gurdwara, which holds some of Nanak's possessions; Pir Ghaus Muhammed, a Sufi mystic who from the age of twelve devoted himself to spiritual practice and reportedly practiced half as a Hindu and half as a Muslim, is buried here in Lakhpat. His tomb is a stone construction with very complex carvings and a water tank that is said to have healing properties. Sayyed Pir Shah's nine-domed mausoleum has intricate carvings, doors, windows and jaalis.
Guests can also visit Narayan Sarovar and Koteshwar temple while visiting Lakhpat.
Lakhpat is typically visited as an excursion ex-Bhuj (136 kms).
