Baghdad, Dec 24 (ANI): In a significant development, the Government of Iraq has decided to rebuild the 15th century Sikh Guru Guru Nanak Dev''s shrine which was destroyed in the 2003 war in Baghdad.

Baghdad was visited by Guru Nanak Dev on his way back from Mecca and Madina. He stayed outside the city of the west of Dajala (Tigris) River, about two kilometers north of Baghdad West railway station.
He held discourses with Sajjadanashins (caretaker of mausoleum) of the mausoleums of Abdul Qadir gilani and Bahlol the Wise, who were greatly impressed by his views on God and religion.
After the Guru''s departure, they raised a memorial in the form of a platform where the Guru had sat and discoursed.
