Providing further details, the PMO said that every year, from December 23 to 25, the Sikh Sangat of Gujarat congregate at Gurudwara Lakhpat Sahib to celebrate Gurpurab, the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, who founded Sikhism, and was the first of the community's 10 Gurus. 

“Guru Nanak Dev Ji stayed here during the course of his travels. Lakhpat Sahib has his relics including wooden footwear and cradle, as well as manuscripts and marking scripts of Gurmukhi," the office noted in its statement.

The shrine suffered damages during the 2001 earthquake, the PMO said further, adding that as the then chief minister of Gujarat, PM Modi took urgent efforts to repair the damages.

“This showed the deep reverence of the Prime Minister for the faith, as also reflected in multiple recent endeavours, including the celebrations of 550th Parkash Purab of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, 350th Parkash Purab of Guru Gobind Singh Ji, and 400th Parkash Purab of Guru Tegh Bahadur ji,” the release stated.

This year, the festival of Gurpurab fell on November 19.
