Gurdwara Rori Sahib, Lahore is located in a village about 25 km from the city of Lahore. This sacred shrine of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, which can can be reached by a mettled road, is located about half a kilometer outside the village. The place where Guru Dev Ji stayed came to be known as Rori Sahib. Guru Nanak Dev came to this place thrice because his maternal grand parents were settled in the nearby village of Dera Chahal. There was a small pool at that time which was later expanded into a tank by one of his followers, Naria, a dweller of this village.

It was through his preaching and devotion that a large number of Bhabray were converted to Sikhism.

The construction of the shrine was started by Bhai Wadhawa Singh and a beautiful Darhar was built. Fairs used to be held on Visakhi and 20th of Jaith. There is an endowment of '100 Bigha land in the name of Gurdwara. The tank has once again depleted into a small pool and sky scarpih dome Rod Sahib is in need of repairs.

Looking at the poor condition of the Site, one can see that if urgently needed repairs are not carried out within a short time this Holy site will become little more than a heap of dust.
