Kartarpur sees highest turnout of 1,467 pilgrims


Kartarpur sees highest turnout of 1,467 pilgrims

Dera Baba Nanak, November 24

The number of pilgrims visiting Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan on Sunday reached 1,467, the highest turnout since the Kartarpur corridor was opened on November 9, officials said.

The number of devotees visiting the historic Kartarpur shrine — the final resting place of Guru Nanak — had not crossed the 700-mark per day since the corridor was opened.

Immigration officials expected further increase in the number as people were getting aware of the online process of registration.

Besides, Suvidha centres were also playing a vital role in increasing the number of pilgrims, the officials said.

Gurvinder Bajwa, general secretary of Ravi Darshan Abhilashi Sanstha, said: “The government should remove the condition of passport as a majority of people do not have it but they want to visit Kartarpur.

During the first three days after a grand opening of the corridor on November 9, just 897 devotees visited the Kartarpur shrine. — PTI
