After 72 years in the Sialkot of the Punjab province of Pakistan, the Hindu temple has been re-opened. Shawla Teja Singh Temple at Sialkot has been reopened for the first time since independence of Pakistan. Now in this temple, idols of gods and goddesses will be set up by India.
The devotees opened this temple again after 72 years and organized the Temple Opening Ceremonies from Hindu custom. During this time, every one of the hymns of Har-Har Mahadev was worshiped with the worship in the temple. The initiative of re-opening this temple was initiated by the Pakistan Evakai Trust Property Board (ETPB). Other Hindu leaders, including the President of Hindu Reforms meeting Amarnath Randhawa, Dr. Munnet Chand and Pandit Kashi Ram were present in the Opening Ceremonies. Shrine Secretary Syed Faraj Abbas says that for the last several years, people of the Hindu community were demanding to open the temple again. This temple has been re-opened on the instructions of the Evakai Trust Property Board and Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan.
After evaluating the cost of the renovation of the temple, the restoration work will start. Statues of gods and goddesses will be installed in the temple. Amarnath Randhawa, president of Hindu Reforms Sabha, has praised the government for reopening the temple again. He said that the people of the Hindu community had been demanding to open this temple for a long time. Opening the temple again is big news for us. He said that it is necessary that the Hindu community should be allowed to go to the temple easily, so that he can perform rituals daily in the temple. According to sources, statues of gods and goddesses will be brought from India to be installed in this temple.
Apart from this, Pakistan is also constructing Kartarpur corridor. This corridor will be opened on 550th Prakash Pas (Birthday) of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikh religion. Visa Free Entry to Sikh devotees will be given in the Shatapur corridor. A recent statue of Maharaja Ranjeet Singh was also installed in Lahore in Pakistan. This statue was unveiled at Maharaja Ranjit's 180th death anniversary.
