      OK now i guess because they were initially used on Gurdawaras (of guru nanak) so they care called nanak shahi
      shahi for something of high stature

      there is also a nanakshahi calendar

        what kind of briks we find in building built before Sikh era? I think the masjid in Bhanbhore also has bricks like these.

          ^ I don't know about the kind of bricks used before these, but i believe these bricks were in common use, not specific to gurdawaras' but some people took the name from there and it spread by word of mouth, thats it. otherwise i'm sure lots of people who have seen these bricks even used them in their own homes, building won't know they are called naanak shahi bricks. probably the name is common in Indian punjab.

            I read that in Ahmed Bashir's novel 'Dil Bhatke ga'.
