Kartarpur Sahib is fast shaping up to greet the big numbers expected for the commemoration of 550th birth of Guru Nanak.

So is Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur, one of the centre of attractions, which was where Guru Nanak spent the last 18 years of his life. Then located in the once undivided Punjab. Kartarpur is today located in the Pakistan side of Punjab.

Being located not too far from the India-Pakistan border, the gurdwara can actually be seen from the Indian side, something done by Sikhs and others.

Sharing the latest photos, former Pakistan Punjab MLA Ramesh Singh Arora writes: “Phase one of the Kartar Pur Sahib Corridor is completed as promised with the Sikh Nation. Some glimpse of the night view and during the sunshine. 9th November 2019 corridor would be inaugurated by the Prime Minister of Pakistan.”

In a Tweet today (1 Nov), Imran said Pakistan will waive two requirements for Sikhs coming for pilgrimage to Kartarpur from India. One, they wont need a passport – just a valid ID. Two, they no longer have to register 10 days in advance.

“Also, no fee will be charged on day of inauguration & on Guruji’s 550th birthday,” he said.
