Gurdwara Kartarpur Sahib is located in town by the same name Kartarpur (Ravi) in Pakistan. The shrine is located about 3 kms from the Indo-Pakistan border.
The original abode established by Guru Nanak was washed away by floods of the river Ravi and the present Gurdwara was established by Maharaja Ranjit Singh.
When Guru Nanak departed for his heavenly abode, Hindus and Muslims disagreed on how to perform the last rites. The Hindus as per their tradition wanted to carry out a cremation while the Muslims wanted to carry out a burial. A samadh (Hindu tradition) lies in the Gurdwara and a grave (according to Muslim traditions) lies on the premises as a reminder of this discord.
The Gurdwara is located next to a small village named Kothay Pind (village) on the West bank of the Ravi River in Punjab, Pakistan.
