THOUSANDS of Sikhs have gathered in Pakistan to celebrate the 549th birth anniversary of the founder of the Sikh religion, Baba Guru Nanak Dev Ji and at the same time the ground breaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor also took place.

The open corridor would give Sikh Pilgrims easy access to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib, which is located in Kartarpur , Narowal.

This name 'Kartarpur' is in news these days, and I thought the readers and students must get an insight of this place and the Gurdawara located there, which is one of the most revered Gurdwara for Sikhs all around the world.

Narowal is a district in Punjab, Pakistan and during the British rule it was the town of Raya Khas Tehsil of Sialkot District.

Karatarpur is located in Tehsil Shakargarh, Narowal District and is close to the Pak-India border.

Karatarpur which means ''The City of God,'' as per Sikh history and references, was established by Guru Nanak Dev Ji somewhere in 1532.

Guru Nanak Dev Ji is a venerated personality as he is the founder of Sikh religion and, Gurdwara Kartarpur is where he died, the first Gurdwara was also built there to commemorate the site where Guru Nanak settled after his missionary work and assembled a Sikh community and where he lived for 18 years until his death in 1539.

This also makes Kartarpur the first headquarters of the Sikh religion and the reason why it holds so much importance for Sikhs.

The honor and serving of the latest operational research on Religions and Honors continues. The World Students Society thanks author and researcher Tania Querishi.
