Nanakmatta is an important Sikh pilgrimage centre that lies on the Rudrapur-Tanakpur route. Known as the abode of the yogis, this place has many devotees of Guru Gorakhnath and was earlier known as Gorakhmatta. When Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru, visited this place in the 16th century, its name was changed to Nanakmatta. Guru Nanak is said to have meditated here and it believed that he even taught the yogis the true path of meditation.

Guru Nanak was enchanted with the serene surroundings and divinity of the place and is said to have bestowed his blessings on it, which resulted in its growth. Nanakmatta is 17 kilometres from Khatima and is situated in the Udham Singh Nagar district in Uttarakhand. Another attraction here that adds to the popularity of the place is the Nanakmatta Dam built across the Saryu River. It serves as an ideal fishing and angling destaination.
