Oberoi said that many handwritten sarup were in poor condition due to termite attack that had destroyed the pages in another Gurdwara Nanak Matth situated in Shobawati about 5 kilometers away from Nanak Matth, Balaju.

The land of the 400-year-old Guru Nanak Math still stands in the name of Guru Nanak Dev. In 1516, the then Nepal King Raja Jai Jagat Malla of the Malla dynasty had donated 1,600 acres for religious service to the first Sikh Guru.
