“Zulfiqar Ali Shah”, Sindh’s Tourism Minister, has announced plans to develop a religious corridor on the Pakistan-India border in Sindh, similar to the Kartarpur Corridor. This initiative aims to facilitate visits for Hindu and Jain devotees seeking to explore sacred sites in the region.

Speaking at a tourism promotion event in Dubai on June 6, 2024, Shah proposed establishing the corridor in Umarkot and Nagarparkar. Nagarparkar, known for its numerous ancient Jain temples, is particularly highlighted for its historical significance.

Shah emphasized the growing interest among Hindu and Jain communities in visiting Sindh. He suggested that the Sindh government could initiate a weekly flight from India to either Sukkur or Larkana to cater to religious tourists.

Umarkot features the renowned Shri Shiv Mandir, one of Sindh’s oldest Hindu temples, with claims suggesting its origins date back over 2,000 years. According to a local Hindu community leader interviewed by an international news agency, the temple could be even older, dating back as far as 5,000 years. Nagarparkar also hosts several abandoned Jain temples, adding to its cultural and religious significance.

The Kartarpur Corridor, inaugurated by Pakistan on November 9, 2019, connects the Pakistan-India border to the Kartarpur Gurdwara, a revered Sikh pilgrimage site. This corridor has drastically reduced travel time for Sikh pilgrims, who can now visit the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur without needing a visa.

Previously, Sikh pilgrims had to travel a much longer route via Lahore, covering 125 kilometers to reach Kartarpur. The Gurdwara, where Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, spent his final years, holds immense spiritual importance for Sikhs worldwide.
