The Centre has said that 1,500 Indian Pilgrims will visit Pakistan this Gurupurab. External Affairs Ministry Spokesman Arindam Bagchi expressed hope that Pakistan will facilitate the visit of around 1,500 Indian pilgrims to that country through the Attari-Wagah transit point in view of Gurupurab.

Mr. Bagchi said the visit will be covered under the 1974 bilateral protocol between India and Pakistan on visits to religious shrines.

The pilgrims are scheduled to visit Gurudwara Darbar Sahib, Gurudwara Kartarpur Sahib, Gurudwara Panja Sahib, Gurudwara Dehra Sahib, Gurudwara Nankana Sahib and Gurudwara Sachha Sauda from 17th to 26th of November.

In November 2019, India and Pakistan threw open the Kartarpur corridor linking Dera Baba Sahib in Gurdaspur in India with the Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib in Pakistan, in a historic people-to-people initiative.

Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara is located in Pakistan's Narowal district across the river Ravi, about four kilometers from the Dera Baba Nanak shrine. It is the final resting place of Sikh faith's founder Guru Nanak Dev, who had spent the last 18 years of his life in Kartarpur.
