History It is dedicated to Guru Nanak Devji who visited Mathura and Vrindavan during the month long Shravan fair held in the Bikrami month of Savan (July-August). As the water of the river during this period is muddy, the Guruji is said to have set up and himself manned a piau (drinking water stall) and served clean water to pilgrims. The commemorative shrine established here and maintained by a long line of Udasi priests was taken over by the Mathura Singh Sabha during the 1950s, and was handed over to Sant Sadhu Singh Mauni in 1975 for reconstruction. It now has a rectangular hall with vaulted roof and a verandah in front, besides several rooms for staff and pilgrims. A water tank with taps on the roadside represents Guru Nanak Dev ji's piau.
Remarks Mathura, another well-known holy place for Hindus, 150 kilometres south of Delhi, was visited by the first, sixth, ninth and by the tenth Guruji.
