Dera Baba Nanak is situated 35 kms to west of Gurdaspur in Punjab, on the left bank of river Ravi .The great Guru Nanak Dev Ji spent the last twelve years of his precious worldly life here in Dera Baba Nanak.The whole place was in fact the abode of Guru Nanak Ji but it was on this bank that he chose to meditate. A beautiful gurudwara stands here today to commemorate the place.
Guru Nanak not only played a spiritual role but enriched the life of millions by his social, political, economic understanding. All through his life the great Guru spread the message of Love, respect and brotherhood. An original Chola or robe believed to have been worn by Guruji during his visit to the famous Muslim pilgrimages of Mecca and Madina is also kept here in Dera Baba Nanak.
Thousands of people throng Dera Baba Nanak every year to get a glimpse of the Chola Sahib, which is displayed for viewing of the common people.
On the right bank of Ravi, just opposite to Dera Baba Nanak, is the town of Kartarpur found by Guru Nanak Dev ji. The Great Guru breathed his last and left for heavenly abode in this place.
This place now falls under the territory of the neighboring country Pakistan but the beautiful gurudwara of the town is visible clearly by naked eyes from Dera Baba Nanak.
