As many as 1,800 people are scheduled to cross the border to visit Kartarpur on Sunday, November 24 — nearly three times the 671 people who were scheduled to visit on November 17.
The numbers show that the pilgrims and tourists from India who are travelling to the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara across the border in Pakistan are gradually rising. During the initial days, the response was lukewarm. The flow of pilgrims to Kartarpur Sahib is picking up on weekends and on specific Sikh religious days. A total of 562 Indian pilgrims and tourists visited Kartarpur Sahib on November 9, the day the corridor was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi from the Indian side.
On the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, on November 12, a total of 546 people from India made the trip.
