The Gurudwara Chadar Sahib holds great significance with both mythology and religious values. It is located in the Bharuch District on the banks of the river Narmada. The major attractions of the Gurudwara are the prayer hall and langar mahal. The adjoining Narmada river bank is also very scenic to look at from the vicinity of the Chadar Sahib.
The Gurudwara was built to commemorate the 15th century visit by Guru NanajDev to Bharuch. The Sikh place of worship is famous as it was part of the voyage taken by 1st Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Ji on his journey to North India. The Chadar Gurudwara gets its name on the mythological tales of Guru Nanak crossing the river on chadar or blanket and walking on it as he was refused a boat to cross it by the then local king. It holds a great religious sentiment in the hearts of the Sikhs since then.
