It is situated in Topanwala on the main road just beyond the crossroad. Workshops have closed in the former temple of Kali, but its spire can still be seen hanging over the surrounding structures from the street and alleyways. When Jagat Guru Nanak Dev came to this city during the course of his fourth world travels, this temple (Mandir) was used for the worship of Kali (a Hindu Goddess). Guru Nanak Dev stayed at some distance from the temple of Kali (but the moment he entered the town the murti of Kali is said to have toppled to the ground). The priest lifted the murti and attempted to prop it up, only to watch it fall again. Someone watching this sight from the side shouted, “A sant (saint) has come here and maybe this is happening due to his presence.” The priest went to him. Guru Nanak Dev explained the meaning of one Lord to him and advised him to be one of His devotees. After this incident the worship of idols was abolished and Prakash of Guru Granth was begun. But the lure of old habits and ways fits one like a pair of well worn shoes, so as time passed the the priests once again placed the idol of Kali Devi. This temple has come to be known as Gurdwara Kali Devi to commemorate this event. A school is presently housed in the premises where the Sri Guru Granth Sahib is now absent.
