The Sacred and Holy Datun (Neem) Tree also known as The Shri Datun Sahib Ji Gurdwara
Jun 2018 • Couples
Datun Sahib is the name of a tree in the Main Market at Leh. Shri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji visited this site around 1517. The ancient 'sacred' Datun tree which many people believe is the biggest and the oldest tree alive, was actually planted by Shri Guru Nanak Sahib Ji during his missionary travels. Considered to be sacred by the city's residents, the tree was the first tree to grow in the area. At the time of the Guru's visit the high desert had no trees as only small shrubs and bushes would grow at the high, arid altitude. There is no Gurdwara building at the site, but the remains of a large meswak tree are located. A small board relating the history of the Guru's visit and his planting of the young neem tree has been erected on a fence, which encircles the tree.

There were numerous Sikh religious followers from all over the world at this shrine, located at the heart of Ladakh Valley. The food, drinking water and other amenities were available aplenty.

Gurudwara Sahib historically linked to Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji
Sep 2018 • Couples
Adjacent to Leh Market, there is a narrow street which is know as Bread Street or Bread Alley for the reason that the street houses most of the bakeries. Its a Muslim dominated area and the Jama Masjid is also nearby. At the end of the street (towards the market) there is a Neem Tree and its believed that Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji used the Datun (Stick used for chewing and cleaning teeth) from this tree. Gurudwara Sahib is built around this Tree. There is hardly any place around the tree because its a narrow street and therefore the Gurudwara Sahib is now built at a higher place next to the Tree.

A must visit for Sikhs

The existent Gurudwara is tiny, basically surrounding a meswak tree. However, they are building a big new gurudwara next to it. There is a good feeling about the place.

An essential important visit
Jun 2017 • Family
Guru Nank Devji used a meswak twig (Datun) to brush while sitting on a rock which is still there. A meswak tree grew from that same twig and its twigs are used to cure people's diseases, hence the name Datun Sahib. But unfortunately, not enough being done for the gurudwara and there is a limitation of land also. It is in the Leh main market. A must visit.
