Meetha Reetha Sahib Tour
The famous Sikh pilgrim place is 72 kms from Champawat. The first Guru of the Sikhs came here and had holy dialogue with Gorakhpanthi Jogis. The Gurudwara here stands at the meeting of Lodhiya and Ratiya rivers, near village Deyuri. There are trees of Reetha in the Gurudwara grounds, which according to mythology have become sweet due to the amazing touch of the Guru.
However, the general trust that the nuts only of one branch, under which the Guru had sat, are sweet is not true. Nor are all the nuts given as prasad yielded by this one tree. About ten kilometers from the Grudwara, there is a area of land where such trees are full-grown and their fruit is collected and brought to restock the Gurdwara's stock of prasad. It is called Nanak Bagichi (lit. Nanak's garden).
The Meetha Reetha Sahib is placed at a distance of 72 kms from Champawat.
