History Guru Nanak Devji visited here and his feet can still be seen here. Guru Ji stayed near the Pashupatinath temple on the bank of Baghmati Ganga. He asked Bhai Mardana to play upon the rebec and himself sang one of his hymns. The yogis and ascetics of other cults gathered around the Guru and held discussions. The Guru forbade them from idol worship and made them devotees of the Lord. The king of Nepal, Raja Sasodhia Rajput Mahan Ranbir Singh came to the Guru Ji and received secular as well as religious instructions. It is said that with the blessing of the Guru the King had two sons. There are now two Dharamsalas in the memory of the Visit of Guru Nanak Dev ji, one managed by Nirmalas and other by Udasis. The Gurdwara is situated on the hillock on the western bank of the River Bashnumati .
Remarks The pujari's name who looks after this place is Nemamuni Udaseen. The lovely, lonely Guru Nanak Math is in need of a Sikh Scholar to unravel its truths and legends. Until then it will remain a half-forgotten temple on a wooded hill threatened by the brick and concrete advances Kathmandu.
