MIRZAPUR (25Â°10`N, 82Â°35`E), in Uttar Pradesh on the right bank of the River Gariga was visited by Guru Nanak, in the course of his travels across the country. When Guru Tegh Bahadur passed through the town in 1666 on his way from Allahabad to Varanasi, he met here a Sikh sangat. Separate shrines dedicated to the two Gurus are said to have existed once, but there are no traces of them left now. However, an old gurudwara, named Shri Nirmal Sarigat, stands near Narayan Ghat. It is a modestlooking building, with the Guru Granth Sahib seated on a marble platform in a small room. The shrine is managed by Nirmala priests.
