Guru Nanak was born April 15, 1469 A.D. The Birthplace of Guru Nanak is Nankana, a town in Pakistan, which belonged to the northern part of Punjab before partition. The town originally had been called Raipur. Before Nanak's birth the name had changed to Talwandi. After he became guru, the village became known as Nankana.
