In a landmark peace move, the Pakistan government opened the Kartarpur Corridor today, permitting Indian pilgrims to visit the revered Sikh Guru’s final resting place without a visa.

The three-kilometer corridor provides visa-free access to Sikh pilgrims, allowing them to travel to Gurudwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, where Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, spent the final years of his life. The passage links Narowal district to Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur in Punjab, India.
