NATHANA SAHIB, Gurdwara near the village of Jand Magholi in Patiala district, is dedicated, according to Gurus habad Ratnakar Mahan Kosh, to Guru Tegh Bahadur, but is now called Gurdwara Nathana Sahib Patshahi Tisari. According to current tradition, Guru Amar Das stayed here 22 times during his annual pilgrimage journeys before he had met Guru Arigad and become his Sikh. The present building of the Gurdwara comprises a divan hall with the sanctum in the middle of it.
Above the sanctum is a square room topped by a lotus dome and a gilded pinnacle with an umbrella shaped fmial. Two rows of rooms on one side constitute the Guru ka Larigar and a residential block for pilgrims; on the other side is the 50metre square sarovar. The Gurdwara is managed by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee through a local committee. Special gatherings take place on the first of every Bikrami month and a fair is held to mark the Lohrl festival during mid January.
