The Kartarpur corridor links Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan, the final resting place of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev, to Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Punjab's Gurdaspur district.

After a hiatus of more than one-and-a-half years, Kartarpur Sahib Corridor will reopen on Wednesday, just two days ahead of the Prakash Utsav of Shri Guru Nanak Dev. The pilgrimage to the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara was suspended in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
