Kartarpur Sahib is that great historical place of pilgrimage where Shree Guru Nanak Dev Jee spent his final 17 years, 5 months & 9 days of his life.

He outlined the basic principles of his philosophy of humanity, which later became the fundamentals of Sikh religion. 

The place is an abode of ultimate faith for the Sikhs.   

He delivered the message “Earn An Honest Living, Meditate on One God’s Name and Share The Fruits Of Efforts With Those in Need” to the whole humanity.

That is why the followers of all religions deem him their own prophet.

A place where all three major nations come together to sit on one table and talk about common issues in that sector.
