A reverse google image search shows that the structure is not of the Kartarpur Gurudwara. It is of the immigration centre located near to Kartarpur Gurudwara. A Pakistani flag of height 150-feet has been hoisted on the rooftop of the immigration centre.
The photos of Kartarpur Gurudwara was also tweeted by Pakistan Prime Minister:
