Kartarpur is in Shakargarh Tehsil, Narowal District in Punjab, Pakistan, located on the right bank of the Ravi River. Guru Nanak Sahib founded Kartarpur in 1504 AD with money donated by a wealthy Khatri Hindu Karori who converted to Sikhism. The word “Kartarpur” means “city of Creator or God”, as in Punjabi Kartar means “Creator’ and Pur means “City'”.Guru Nanak’s teachings laid the foundation of Sikhism, emphasizing the unique nature of God and the equality of all human beings. But what set Kartarpur apart was its adherence to these principles. Guru Nanak founded the Langar Institution, a community kitchen that provided free food to all, regardless of social or economic differences.
