Guru Nanak is said to have lived in the place for the last 18 years of his life. The place witnessed the Guru preaching the three principles of life namely Kirat Karo (work hard for a livelihood), Naam Japo (keep chanting the name of God) and Wand Chako (sharing remuneration with the world). The place significantly upholds the teaching of equality and unity of people of all religion and promotes peaceful living and harmony.
The long wished visa free Kartarpur corridor of the Sikh pilgrims residing in Pakistan finally saw light of hope on November 9th 2019 with the inauguration of the Kartarpur corridor on the auspicious occasion of Guru Nanak’s 550th birth anniversary. The place graced by the last breath of Guru Nanak is considered to be the 2nd holiest site for the mankind after Nankana Sahib, the Guru’s birth place.
