This is the holy place where "Guru" Nanak appeared for the first time, after his meeting with Sri Akaal Purkh. It is not the same place as where Guru Sahib entered River Bein, but about 1 kilometre down the river. It was here where Guru Sahib made his famous "There is no Hindu or Muslim" statement. Bhai Gurdas Ji writes about this : "ਪਹਿਲਾ ਬਾਬੇ ਪਾਯਾ ਬਖਸੁ ਦਰਿ, ਪਿਛੋ ਦੇ ਫਿਰਿ ਘਾਲਿ ਕਮਾਈ। First of all Baba Nanak obtained the gate of the grace (of Lord) and then He underwent and earned the rigorous discipline( of heart and mind). ਰੇਤੁ ਅਕੁ ਆਹਾਰੁ ਕਰਿ, ਰੋੜਾ ਕੀ ਗੁਰ ਕਰੀ ਵਿਛਾਈ। He fed himself with sand and swallow-wort and made stones his bedding i.e. he enjoyed poverty too. ਭਾਰੀ ਕਰੀ ਤਪਸਿਆ, ਵਡੇ ਭਾਗੁ ਹਰਿ ਸਿਉ ਬਣਿ ਆਈ। He offered hid full devotion and then he was fortunate to have proximity with God. ਬਾਬਾ ਪੈਧਾ ਸਚਖੰਡਿ, ਨਉ ਨਿਧਿ ਨਾਮੁ ਗਰੀਬੀ ਪਾਈ। Baba reached the region of truth wherefrom he received Nam, the storehouse of nine treasures and humility. ਬਾਬਾ ਦੇਖੈ ਧਿਆਨ ਧਰਿ, ਜਲਤੀ ਸਭਿ ਪ੍ਰਿਥਵੀ ਦਿਸਿ ਆਈ। In his meditation, Baba found the whole earth burning (with the fire of lust and anger). ਬਾਝਹੁ ਗੁਰੂ ਗੁਬਾਰ ਹੈ, ਹੈ ਹੈ ਕਰਦੀ ਸੁਣੀ ਲੁਕਾਈ। Without Guru there is utter darkness and he heard the cries of the common men. ਬਾਬੇ ਭੇਖ ਬਣਾਇਆ ਉਦਾਸੀ ਕੀ ਰੀਤਿ ਚਲਾਈ। To further understand the people, Guru Nanak donned robes in their manner and preached them to be detached (from the pleasure and pain). ਚੜ੍ਹਿਆ ਸੋਧਣਿ ਧਰਤਿ ਲੁਕਾਈ ॥੨੪॥ Thus he went out to depurate humanity on earth. " There were some other Gurdwaras in Sultanpur I wanted to visit but didn't get a chance. Next visit I will definitely go. The Gurdwara where Guru Nanak's braat commenced their journey, the Gurdwara where Guru Sahib went to pray in the Mosque (the site is now a Gurdwara.) The above are the Bein where Guru Sahib appeared after 3 days. Below is the Gurdwara constructed to comemorate that special event: The Gurdwara Sant Ghat Sahib from the front: and a board detailing the signifiance of the holy place:
