Several functions were organised in Gurudwaras across the region to celebrate the day which is also known as Gurupurab.
The main function in Jammu was held at Guru Nanak Dev Gurudwara at Bibi Chand Kaur Samad in the city where thousands of devotees paid their obeisance to the Guru.
People from different faiths also went to the Gurudwaras to pay their obeisance to the first Sikh Guru.
Special pandals and langars (community kitchens) were also organised on the occasion.
"I have come here to pay obeisance to Guru Nanak Devji on his 548th birth anniversary. The message of the first Sikh Guru is clear which teaches us universal brotherhood, peace, remembering God all the time, earning by honest means and sharing with those who are less privileged," Surjeet Kaur, a resident of Raina Colony, said.
