With visa-free access pilgrims can visit the resting place of Sikhism founder Guru Nanak

The Government of Pakistan has opened its hearts and border for the Sikh community allowing them to visit one of their most holy sites starting today (Saturday). 

With visa-free access, pilgrims can now visit the resting place of Guru Nanak, the founder of the Sikh religion. 

Pakistan set a landmark by opening the fourkilometer long corridor and has sent out a message of peace and tolerance to the world.

Daily thousands of pilgrims will be accommodated here to perform their religious rituals.

Pilgrims will be charged $20 each under service charges. However, they will be exempted from paying the charges on the day of the 550th birth anniversary of Baba Guru Nanak.

After their immigration process is completed, the pilgrims will reach the Gurdwara by bus through the 4km-long Corridor.
