GURDWARA SRI NANKANA SAHIB is situated in Kashipur City Distt Udham Singh Nagar, Uttarakhand. The Dhela river used to cause havoc in the city by flooding each year. When SRI GURU NANAK DEV JI reached this place, the local people were on the verge of leaving this place for safer grounds. GURU SAHIB told them to be patient and advised them to remain there only. Thereafter, on the riverside, he started singing kirtan. As the kirtan was in progress, the river rose. GURU SAHIB performed the ardas and the river, after touching GURU SAHIB feet, receded, moved to a distance away from the town. It is said that since then, the river has never flooded the city again. It is also said that earlier the name of the river was Swaran river and that when GURU SAHIB threw a clod (dhela) into the river the name of the river was changed to Dhela river.
