Kartarpur Sahib has a rich history of nearly 500 years. The gurdwara was established in 1522. It is the spot where Guru Nanak assembled the Sikh community and lived for 18 years until his death.

The visiting Sikhs will also be the part of the historic opening of the Kartarpur Corridor on November 9.
The agreement will allow access to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Norowal district of Pakistan where the founder of Sikhism Guru Nanak Dev spent last 18 years of his life.
At least 5,000 pilgrims will be allowed to visit the holy site every day.
While it is expected that the draft agreement on the corridor might be finalized, the meeting might also work out a strategy in case such as if any devotee suffers a medical emergency.
India hopes Pakistan will respond expeditiously on these proposals in order to get the Kartarpur corridor ready in time for the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak in November this year.
India and Pakistan have reiterated their commitment to constructing the Kartarpur Corridor despite tensions since the Pulwama terror attack.
