Pakistan is a repository of significant Sikh sites, revered by Sikhs globally for their profound religious and historical relevance. These locations not only anchor Sikhs to their spiritual origins but also facilitate cultural exchange and interfaith harmony. Among these, the Gurdwara Janam Asthan in Nankana Sahib, Guru Nanak Dev’s birthplace, stands as a pinnacle of devotion, attracting numerous pilgrims annually. The Gurdwara Panja Sahib near Islamabad, with Guru Nanak’s hand imprint on a sacred rock, holds spiritual resonance. The Kartarpur Corridor’s opening has allowed Sikhs from India to visit the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur, where Guru Nanak Dev’s last years were spent. Gurdwara Sacha Sauda in Farooqabad and Gurdwara Dera Sahib in Lahore further enrich Sikh heritage, the latter commemorating Guru Arjan Dev’s martyrdom. This religious tourism not only nurtures Sikh heritage but also reinforces cross-cultural understanding and communal harmony, an emblem of shared humanity.
