As the COVID-19 situation in Pakistan has eased over the recent week, Pakistan declared on Sunday that the Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib Corridor on its side has been reopened.
Kartarpur Corridor, Sikhism’s second holiest place, has reopened after a more than one-month hiatus, and pilgrims and visitors have begun to visit the sacred site.
The 4.7-kilometre-long Dera Baba Nanak Sahib tunnel has reopened, according to officials. The reopening of the corridor will be accompanied by stringent adherence to SOPs in order to combat the Covid-19.
Meanwhile, the Director-General of the Punjab Rangers flew over the area in a helicopter to check the security measures and discuss with the administration.
Prime Minister Imran Khan opened the Kartarpur Corridor on November 9, 2019, only days before Baba Guru Nanak’s 550th birthday. Sikh pilgrims from India may now visit the holy site without needing a visa.
