SAHOVAL, village 8 km southwest of Sialkot (32″30`N, 74″32`E) in Pakistan, is sacred to Guru Nanak (1469-1539) who once came here travelling from Sialkot and , according to local tradition, stayed under a ber tree (Ziziphus maiiritiana) near a pond for seven days. A gurdwara was later raised here and the pond lined into a sarovar or holy tank named Nanaksar. Gurdwara Nanaksar preserved within its compound the ber tree, reverently called Ber Sahib, under which Guru Nanak is said to have halted temporarily. The shrine was abandoned at the time of the 1947 exodus following the partition of the Punjab.
