KARNAL (29°42`N, 76"59`E), a district town of Haryana, situated along the historic Grand Trunk road, 123 km north of Delhi, is sacred to Guru Nanak. Gurdwara MarijT Sahib commemorates his visit to Karnal in 1515 when he held a religious discourse with one Shaikh Tahir (referred to as Tatihar in the ValdyatvdH Janam Sdkhi, which, however, places him in Panipat). The Guru pointed out that the practice of worshipping graves and tombs of holy men amounted to a breach of the injunctions of Islam. Guru Tegh Bahadur is also believed to have visited the shrine in 1670 during his journey from Delhi to Lakhnaur. Raja Gajpat Singh ofJmd (17381789) had a gurudwara raised on the site of the Mariji Sahib. An assembly hall on the first floor and the langar and a twostoreycd concrete pavilion were added later. The Gurdwara is affiliated to Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, which administers it through a local committee.
