The temple situated at Gur Mandi near Imam Nasir mausoleum dates back
to the Lodhi Era. Believed to be built by the Nawab of Sultanpur Lodhi,
the mandir is a blend of Muslim Hindu architecture. The main gate is built
in the style of a mosque while the rest of the building is in Hindu style.
There is a legend that when Jalandhar was Nawabs territory, he had eyed
a newly married Hindu girl who was a devotee of Lord
Shiva. Lord Shiva in the form of a serpent saved her honour. Awed
by the appearance of this serpent the Nawab apologised to the girl and
built the temple on her bidding.
