Gurdwara Patti Sahib, also called Gurudwara
Maulvi Patti, lies midway between Gurdwara
Janam Asthan and Gurdwara Bal Lila. It
is along the road leading from Janam Asthan
to the railway station. Patti means a
wooden tablet on which young scholars
practice writing. Hence the name of the
shrine which represents the village school
attended by Guru Nanak Dev. It is also
said that young Nanak surprised his teacher
by composing the reciting an acrostic,
called Patti, and this is why the shrine
is called Patti Sahib or Maulvi Patti.
The Gurdwara consists only of the sanctum
in a small square domed room.
