In the Course of Guru Nanak Dev ji's Travels (Udasis) Guru Nanak Dev ji visited Gujarat and onto Lakhpat. In old times Lakhpat was past of Sind (Now in Pakistan). Lakhpat is 170 Kms from Gandhidham, Gujarat (India). In sixteen century it was known as "Basta Bander".

Lakhpat used to be rice growing area and was a popular port also, but due to Earthquake of 1819 A.D., the area became barren and crops withered away for want of water because river disappeared.

To commorate the visit of Lakhpat by Guru Nanak Dev ji, a Gurudwara was built in the early years of Nineteenth Century and a vast tract of land was bestowed to Gurudwara to make up expenses for maintenance and to look after the visitors, from the revenue from the land and the crops grown there. Lakhpat is about 20 Km from KORIANI village where there is a big Srover in memory of the visit by Guru Nanak Dev ji. From Lakhpat Guru crossed to SONMIANI port in Sind for going to MECCA MADINA (Saudi Arabia).
