Gurdwara Manji Sahib is associated with the first Guru, Guru Nanak Dev Ji. He visited this place during his third Udasi (travels) in 1517. There was a big jungle here at that time. A group of yogis practised Hatha Yoga at the Dhara Mandap. Guruji impressed upon them the futility of self-torture and renunciation as a means to salvation. He uttered the Asa Di Var shabad, likh likh padia Tota kadia, here. He is also said to have cured the hands of the Tunda Raja by sprinkling water from the sacred baoli. This baoli still exists here
Gurdwara Manji Sahib is situated in the Main Bazaar, Pinjore on the Chandigarh Simla Road, near Pinjore Gardens.
