The new Gurdwara is built on the site where Guru Nanak died on 22 September 1539. Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan opened the Kartarpur Corridor on 9 November 2019, just days before Guru Nanak’s 550th birthday. This historic moment officially allowed Indian Sikh pilgrims unique visa-free access to Pakistan’s site.

In the agreement between Pakistan and India, it has been said that five thousand Sikh Yatrees will be permitted to visit the Gurdwara via the corridor daily as Gurdwara is a religious hub for followers.

Therefore, it is expected that the Kartarpur Corridor will open doors to economic development in the country, as well as boost local business on a large scale.
