Meetha Reetha Sahib

Meetha Reetha Sahib is located at Dyuri village of Champawat district which is 72 kms from Champawat. Basically this place is well connected with almost all the major towns of Kumaon region. Once Guru Nanak ji went to visit this place and it’s said that Nanak ji have had spiritual discussion with Gorakhpanthi Jogis over there. The Gurudwara of Reetha Sahib was constructed in 1960 at the confluence of Lodhiya and Ratiya river, which is near village Deyuri. This Gurudwara also knows as Meetha Reetha because there are famous trees of sweet Reetha (Sapindus emarginatus) in the Gurudwara premises, adjoining it to the temple of Dhernath. Before the motor Road build to Bhingrara, people used to come to see this place on foot. A fair is held at the Gurudwara on Baisakhi Poornima.
