About 5,000 years old, the Sharda temple is one of the oldest Hindu temples

Islamabad, on Monday, green-lit opening a Sharda Temple Corridor in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), for Hindu pilgrims.

The decision came following the approval of the Kartarpur Corridor, a project that connects Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Pakistan’s Narowal district with Dera Baba Nanak in Gurdaspur District, reports The Statesman.

The Pakistani media quoted sources in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as saying that the External Affairs Ministry in New Delhi had already sent a proposal to Islamabad in this regard.

“After Kartarpur, a piece of big news is in the offing for Hindus. Some of the government officials will visit the area and will later submit a report to Pakistan’s Prime Minister,” sources said.

According to The Statesman, official sources in New Delhi said India had made the request in this regard several times to Pakistan, as part of the composite dialogue between the two countries. The proposal was made keeping the wishes and religious sentiments of the people in mind, they added.

Sharda temple is one of the most ancient Hindu temples. The temple is about 5,000 years old.
