Guru Nanak Jayanti refers to the occasion of the birthday of the founder and first guru (teacher) of Sikhs Guru Nanak Dev. This occasion, usually following the festival of Diwali is celebrated not only by Sikhs all across the globe but it is a matter of celebration for the followers of Guru Nanak Dev across different religions and communities in India. These generally include Hindu Punjabis and Sindhis. Guru Nanak was born in Rai Bhoi Di Talwandi (presently known as Nankana Sahib) in 1469 A.D at Lahore, Pakistan. This is the reason why Guru Nanak’s Birthday is even celebrated in Pakistan. There are still many people in Pakistan following the teachings and beliefs of Guru Nanak.
