Important Places

There are some historical / Religious places in the district which are famous throughout the country. Some of the major are mentioned below:

  1. On the nearby hill, at an altitude of 714 meters, there is a meditation chamber related to a 15th century Muslim Saint, Baba Wali Qandhari, popularly known as Baba Hasan Abdal. The saint stayed in Hasan Abdal from 1406-1516AD [citation needed] but died and is buried in village Baba Wali near Qandhar (Afghanistan). The city is named after this saint. The devotees and visitors climb over the steps leading to the hill, for offerings and to have a panoramic view of Hasan Abdal.

  2. Gurdwara Panja Sahib is situated at Hasan Abdal, 48 km from Rawalpindi in Pakistan. This is one of the most holy places of Sikhism because it marks the spot where the founder of the faith, Guru Nanak Dev visited and instilled an important lesson for his followers. Still visible is the sacred rock with the hand print of Guru Nanak. Many thousands of faithful Sikhs from all over the Globe visit this shrine. However, twice a year, during special celebrations, an enormous number of Sikh pilgrims attend this Gurdwara from every corner of the world. Special visas are allocated by the Pakistan government to cater for the increased demand.
