Kartarpur means the City of God, Baba Guru Nanak the founding father of Sikhism laid the foundation of this city in 1515. It is the most sacred place for Sick pilgrims in the world. Pakistan has facilitated the Sick pilgrims from all over the world in general and from India in particular to visit their holy land.
