Gurudwara Mattan Sahib
This was constructed in memory of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak, who in 1516 resided here in Mattan. Once a Brahmin named Pandit Brahmdas visited the Guru and boasted about his knowledge. Hearing this, the Guru recited a simple poem to him, telling that apart from the truth of the Gods’ name, all other knowledge was not permanent. Realizing his mistake, the Brahmin converted to Sikhism and constructed this Gurudwara.
