About Gurudwara Nagiana Sahib

This is a place related with history of Sri GURU NANAK DEV JI. Gurudwara Nagiana Sahib ji is situated in the village Odoke, near Batala about 35 km from Amritsar; The Gurudwara’s main building was built by Sant Baba Chuggat Singh ji. Earlier it was a small place but in 1960 it was renovated and expanded to a large building.

Most of us must have read or heard the story of the “Sheshnag “cobra that shaded young Nanak while he was sleeping in sun. {If you like to read please

The history lead us to believe that the same Cobra that bestowed shade, followed Guru Nanak Dev ji everywhere he went on his Udasians (Travels or pilgrimages of Guru Nanak to spread God's name).

During his travels, Guru Nanak Dev ji stopped at the village Udoke & stayed in Village Udoke for 9 months and 26 days on his way to his in-laws who lived in the city of Batala. The devotee cobra was still following him, by now the cobra had reached a ripe age and was fairly old. Guru Nanak Dev Ji requested him not to follow him anymore; in lieu he should rest and dwell in Nagiana for good. Guru Nanak Dev Ji showered his blessings upon the place that whoever would visit the shrine with the true faith, their wishes shall be fulfilled. Some people perceive Nagiana Sahib as place of worshiping snakes. This is their wrong prescience. It's a Gurudwara and Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji takes precedence above all.

Inside the Gurudwara there's a parkash (presence) of Guru Granth Sahib Ji, in a separate room the sculptures of cobras are displayed on a podium. Miniature cobras made out of metal can be obtained from an outlet at the Gurudwara to bestow offerings in the name of Nag Ji. For Nagis, killing a snake is considered a bad omen.

The administration of the Gurudwara, is taken care by Baba Chuggat Singh Prabandhak Committee, a non-profit making institituion.

Apart from the Gurudwara, The trust is running the educational institute / higher secondary school which is adjacent to Gurudwara.
The gurudwara committee is not only offering the religious study to the students, but also offering the modern education to the students so that they can compete in any of the level of modern metro life.

The Gurudwara is also running the charitable dispensary for the poor and needy people of village from 2009 to till date. The gurudwara trustees are also planning to make this dispensary, A full fledged hospital with all the ultra-modern facilities. The gurudwara trustees are also thinking to offer many of the treatment free of cost.
