Gurudwara Shri Meetha Reetha Sahib was constructed around year 1960. Guru Nanak Dev Ji visited this place with Bhai Mardana Ji. There were Jogis sitting under the reetha (soapnut) trees.

Guru Nanak Dev ji sat under a reetha tree and asked Bhai Mardana Ji to eat a reetha. Reethas are usually bitter in taste but the reetha which Guru Nanak Dev Ji plucked for Bhai Mardana Ji was sweet.

Jogis were surprised by all this and later they come to know that on which side Guru Nanak Dev Ji was sitting all the reethas has become sweet.

These trees are still there in the Gurudwara and the reethas are still said to be sweet in taste.

This is the reason why this place is called Meetha Reetha Sahib.

Even today the people who visits the Gurudwara gets sweet reethas (soapnuts) as prashad.

Due to its religious background this place is considered as a holy place for Sikhs. The temple of Devnath is also located beside the Gurudwara.

Gurudwara Reetha Sahib is situated in Champawat district, Uttarakhand, India. It is 16 hours journey away from Chandigarh (581 km) approx.

This gurudwara holds a very sacred place in Sikh Religion as Guru Nanak Dev himself had visited this place with Bhai Mardana.

Gurdwara Shri Meetha Reetha Sahib is only 60 kms. by flying distance north of Nanak Mata, but the distance by motorable road is 209 kms.

It is 166 kms. from Tanakpur, the last railway station on Bareilly-Tanakpur section. Here, too,

Guru Nanak Dev had an encounter with Nath yogis whom he tried to bring to the path of active humanitarian service along with remembrance of God’s Name.

The story is not mentioned in the Janamsakhis, but locally a strong tradition has grown that Guru Nanak Dev miraculously made the normally bitter fruit of a soapnut tree sweet for Bhai Mardana to feed on.
