Myths tell a tale that when Guru Nanak was visiting the high mountains in his quest to find nirvana and preaching, he was assaulted by an evil spirit. The evil presence tossed a substantial rock on the master as he was sitting & thinking at the foothill. On observing the master unhurt the infuriated devil kicked a rock toward him. Amazingly, the evil spirit's foot made a profound engraving in the rock which had softened. Understanding that the man before him was not a mere human but an enlightened soul, the devil quit pestering him alongside the local people. The stone and the myth related with it were overlooked for quite a while. Be that as it may, the rock was found again amid the development of link between Leh and Nimu. Development work was conveyed to an end by a gigantic rock and notwithstanding all endeavours it couldn't be expelled. The lamas arrived and recalled the legend. Afterward, the armed force authorities, the lamas and others constructed the temple.
The Indian Army maintains the Guru Pathar Sahib till now. It is a convention to pay regards at the gurudwara before proceeding with the adventure for every traveller. In spite of the fact that there are no residential accommodations around the temple, the best choice for explorers is discovering convenience in Leh. Gurudwara Pathar Sahib does not have any food shacks in its vicinity but Prasad is given in wholesome amount to everyone. The capital town has a reasonable number of inns serving for the most part north Indian and Tibetan rarities. The long stretches of June and October are the best time to visit Gurdwara Pathar Sahib.
