Location on Map Gurdwara Maltekri Sahib - Weather

Gurudwara Mal Tekdi Sahib, dedicated to Guru Nanak Dev ji is about five kilometer from Sachkhand Sri Hazur Sahib and is linked to the Nanded-Akola road. Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji had visited this place during his journey to Sangla-Deep (known as Sri Lanka or Ceylon now-a-days) .Guru Nanak Dev ji is said to have held religious courses with a Muslim Lakkad Shah at this spot called Maal Tilla or Chakri Maal. Lakkad Shah's grave is about 100 mtrs, away from the present Gurudwara. The money, which the Tenth Guru distributed at Gurudwara Sangat Sahib, was dug out from this place.

The small Sikh shrine existing here was demolished in 1928 by some Muslim fanatics who claimed the place as theirs. The matter was taken to the Nizam of Hydrabad, who ordered a judicial enquiry, as a result of which the shrine was restored to the Sikhs in January 1930, and Gurdwara Mal Tekari Sahib was re-established. It comprises a single flat-roofed room with a circumambulatory verandah.
