Magnetic Hill India


In Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir state there is a hill near Gurudwara Pather Sahib called Magnetic Hill. This is the only hill in India which has magnetic effect in it . There is a very Big ground on this hill. The magnetic effect can be tested by switching off the engine of your vehicle, the vehicle will start moving in the upward side of sloping road. One can also experience the magnetic effect in shape of jerks while travelling by aeroplane, when the aeroplane crosses the magnetic Hill, the Pilot has to increase the speed of the aeroplane.

The first Guru of Sikhism Guru Nanak Dev ji sat on this place while returning from Tibet to Punjab via Kashmir. The question arises in the mind of everyone why Guru Nanak Dev ji had selected the place near magnetic hill for meditation. It is a well known fact that how much Guru Nanak was environment friendly. The Guru Nanak Tree in Leh city is a live example of it. It seems there is a hidden relation between Magnetic Hill and Gurudwara Pather Sahib. Every year a large number of tourists from all over the world visit at Magnetic Hill, all of them take Langer (meals) at Gurdwara Sahib.
