The group also visited the “Peace Corridor” which connects a Sikh temple on the border between India and Pakistan, which opened in November for the 550th birthday celebrations.

Mrs Kaur Saund said: “After partition, 73 years later, the opening of the Peace Corridor was welcomed by people from both sides, who want peace between neighbours.”

She said the emotional trip gave the the group the chance to reflect on Guru Nanak’s three golden principles of meditation, honest earnings and sharing with others.
