Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur is a Gurdwara in Kartarpur, Narowal District, Pakistan, 120 km from Lahore. It is built on the historic site where Guru Nanak died on 23rd Assu, Samvat 1596 (22 September 1529).
It is also called Dera Nanak Baba and is served by Dera Sahib railway station. The Shrine is located by the River Ravi within a distance of four kilometres from the railway station. The present building was built at a cost of Rs.1,35,600, donated by Sardar Bhupindar Singh, the Maharaja of Patiala. It was repaired by the Government of Pakistan in 1995, and fully restored in 2004, incurring expenditure in lacs of rupees. It has a spacious and beautiful building. Its location beside a forest and river Ravi makes its care difficult.
As the shrine lies only 3 kilometers from the border with India, Pakistan in the year 2000 agreed to allow Sikh pilgrims from India to visit the shrine visa passport-free by constructing a bridge from the border to the shrine – however the Government of India has not signaled its willingness to participate in the scheme for the past 12 years and so no such visits are currently taking place.
