Kartarpur is situated in the tehsil Shakargarh, Punjab, Pakistan, on the bank of the Ravi River. It is said to have been established by the primary master of Sikhism, Guru Nanak, where he built up the main Sikh collective.

Kartarpur is near the India– Pakistan outskirt, and has seen some battling in the territory amid 1965 and 1971 wars between the two neighbors.

History

The main master of Sikhism, Guru Nanak, established Khartarpur in 1504 AD on the bank of the Ravi River. The name Kartarpur signifies "Spot of God". Here all individuals, regardless of their religion or position, lived respectively, speaking to the primary 'Sikh collective'. After his movements for around 20 years, Guru Nanak settled in Kartarpur alongside his family. Following his passing in 1539, Hindus and Muslims both guaranteed him as their own, and brought tombs up in his memory with a typical divider between them. The changing course of the Ravi River in the end washed away the sepulchers. Yet, Guru Nanak's child spared the urn containing his ashes and reburied him on the left bank of the stream, where another residence was shaped, speaking to the present day Dera Baba Nanak.

At the area Gurun Nanak is accepted to have passed on, the Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib was manufactured.

Amid the 1947 parcel of India, the area got separated crosswise over India and Pakistan. The Radcliffe Line granted the Shakargarh tehsil on the right bank of the Ravi waterway, including Kartarpur, to Pakistan, and the Gurdaspur tehsil on the left bank of Ravi to India.

Kartarpur Corridor

Mr Khan Prime Minister of Pakistan in November 2018 laid the foundation stone for the corridor connecting Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan's Kartarpur - the last resting spot of Guru Nanak Dev - to Dera Baba Nanak hallowed place in India's Gurdaspur region to encourage without visa development of Indian Sikh explorers.

The Kartarpur Corridor, which will encourage the without visa travel of Indian Sikh pioneers to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, is relied upon to be finished soon.

A huge number of Sikh fans from India visit Pakistan consistently to celebrate the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak.
