Kartarpur Gurdwara (Guru Nanak Sahib)

 

Kartarpur is a beautiful town located in Shakargarh, Norowal District of Punjab, Pakistan. The Kartarpur Corridor is a Visa-Free border crossing and safe corridor. The first guru of Sikhism “Guru Nanak” founded Kartarpur Gurdwara in 1522 and established the ever first Sikh commune. It ais also claimed as the largest gurdwara in the world. This 16th century Gurdwara at Kartarpur is important for Sikhs as Guru Nanak Dev who spent eighteen years here. There are 20.8 million Sikhism followers in India. They are just 2.5 miles away to reach Pakistan at the historic Kartarpur. It has renovated and recently opened to all Sikh community and international tourists.

It is interesting to count 44951 pilgrims travelled through the Kartarpur corridor at Pakistan’s Sri Kartarpur Gurdwara since the opening of this rout in November 2019. This ancient construction has magnificent views and mastery of architectural artistry. It is significant because of its location as it lies near the border between Pakistan and India. One of the writers tried to draw attention by claiming that; after Guru Nanad death, Muslims want to offer funeral while Hindus wanted to cremate his body. But the Guru Nanak’s body TURNED into flowers, later divided these flowers between the communities. There are FOUR major occasions where every year Sikh community visit the gurdwara.; on Baisakhi (14 April), the death anniversary of Mahara Ranjit Singh (27 June), the martyrdom day of Guru Arjan Dev (16 June) and the birthday of Guru Nanak Dev (29 November).
