A Brief History of Kartarpur Corridor:

In the small village of Punjab kartarpur, the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak had spent the last years of his life. Due to this reason, this place considered significant for both Pakistan and India. Thousands of Sikhs travel each year to visit their holy places in Pakistan. The Kartarpur corridor project was signed between Pakistan and India to facilitate the Sikh community of both countries. Despite huge political tensions between both countries throughout history, the Project of Kartarpur Corridor managed to be completed. After almost 70 years of independence, the Indian Sikh pilgrims are allowed to cross the Pakistani border without having the visa. This is considered a positive step towards better relations between both countries. So this corridor is also considered as a peace corridor that will strengthen the cultural ties of Pakistan and India.For the Kartarpur Tour Packages in Pakistan visit trips.pk.
