Gurdwara - Sikh Religious Place (Sikh Temple)

A Gurdwara, meaning "the doorway to the Guru", is the Sikh place of worship and may be referred to as a Sikh temple. The most famous gurdwara is the Harmandir Sahib in Amritsar.

Any place where the Guru Granth Sahib is installed and treated with due respect can be referred to as a Gurdwara

The Golden Temple is a living symbol of the spiritual and historical traditions of the Sikhs. It is a source of inspiration for all Sikhs and their chief place of pilgrimage. Also known as Harimandir Sahib, it has entrances and doors on all four sides.

Guru Granth Sahib

The Guru Granth Sahib (also known as the Adi Granth) is considered the Supreme Spiritual Authority and Head of the Sikh religion, rather than any living person. The living Guru of the Sikhs, the book is held in great reverence by Sikhs and treated with the utmost respect. It spans 1430 pages and contains the actual words spoken by the Sikh Gurus and various other Saints. The tenth Sikh Guru decreed that after his death the spiritual guide of the Sikhs would be the teachings contained in Guru Granth Sahib.

Guru Gobind SinghGuru Gobind Singh was the last Guru of the Sikhs in human form. He created the Khalsa, a spiritual brotherhood and sisterhood devoted to purity of thought and action. He gave the Khalsa a distinctive external form to remind them of their commitment, and to help them maintain an elevated state of consciousness. Fore more information on Baisakhi click here. Every Sikh baptized as Khalsa vows to wear the Five "K's":

The community of men and women who have been initiated into the Sikh faith is the Khalsa. The Khalsa celebrated its 300th anniversary in 1999.
