LAHORE: After agreement on Kartarpur Corridor, Pakistan and India are now making preparations for opening Sharada Peeth Corridor in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).

An important announcement on the Peeth Corridor is expected to be made within few days. According to sources in the Indian foreign affairs ministry, a proposal is under consideration to build a corridor at the Sharada Peeth temple situated in AJK, situated 22 kilometres from Kupwara in the Indian Held Kashmir (IHK).

The Indian government has written several letters to Pakistani authorities on this proposal. Sharada Peeth temple is a highly reverent place of worship for Hindus which is about 5,000 years old. It is also considered the oldest education centre for some Hindus which was established in 237 BC during the reign of Maharaja Ashoka. Until 1947, Hindus used to visit the temple for Darshan, but after that their access to the temple became difficult.
