The Pakistan's eastern small district,to settle oneself confortably in the green rice fields,the white domes of the Sri Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara offer a striking brightness.

Guru Nanak in the Centuries past, is belief that he was the founder of Sikhism, spent his final days in this nestled village, formalising many of the practices of what would become a religion followed by more than 25 million people around the world today with farming of the fields.

Guru Nanak died in 1539, the legend was made reference to by both Muslims and Hindus that there was a disagreement over how his remains should be laid to rest: Should he be  buried, cremated, as Hindus wished? Or buried in the Islamic tradition.

As at present,the Sikh gurdwara, or the place of adoration, built over his final resting place, is made up of both a Hindu samadhi (shrine) and a Muslim grave marking his passing.

In the few kilometres from the place, Sikhs gather at a platform of stand to see one of the most solemn religious ceremony sites in their religion, lining up to pay respect to Guru Nanak by  seeing the gurdwara via a set of hand-held devices consisting of series of lenses and prisms used to magnify objects.
