BEERWAH (pronounced Birvah), a sub divisional town in Badgam district of Jammu and Kashmir, 35 km southwest of Srinagar (34Â° 5`N, 74Â° 50`E), claims a historical Sikh shrine, Gurdwara Sri Guru Nanak Charan Asthan Dukhnivaran, commemorating the visit of Guru Nanak to these parts in the early years of the sixteenth century. The old building was washed away by floods in 1948. Only a single small room served as the gurdwara until the present doublestoreyed building was constructed in 1975.
Situated on the bank of the rivulet Sukhnala, south of the town, the shrine has a divan hall on the first floor, with the sanctum in the middle. A separate rooi(i to the east of the main building serves as Guru ka Langar. The Gurdwara is managed by the Jammu and Kashmir Gurdwara Prabandhak Board through its Badgam district committee.
