550th Guru Nanak Prakash Purab: The International Nagar Kirtan has departed from the Gurudwara Shri Guru Singh Sabha in Prayagraj to the next destination Gurudwara Shri Guru Ka Bagh in Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh via Mirzapur By-pass. The International Nagar Kirtan, earlier, was rested at Gurudwara Shri Guru Singh Sabha in Prayagraj (Allahabad). The Palki Sahib is on the journey of across India and hence the International Nagar Kirtan is making rounds across the nation.
The Palki Sahib is coming all the way from Sri Nankana Sahib in Pakistan which is here to celebrate the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Also, Nankana Sahib is the birthplace of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, this is the reason why the International Nagar Kirtan is historical and worth memorable. This is for the first time in history that an International Nagar Kirtan has arrived in India and making rounds here.
The International Nagar Kirtan entered India via Wagah Border in Amritsar, where the Shiromani Akali Dal President Sukhbir Singh Badal was present to welcome the holy Palki Sahib. Also, the Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal and other key leaders were present at the spot to welcome the International Nagar Kirtan and worship the Palki Sahib, which is coming all the way from Sri Nankana Sahib.
