The Gurdwara has been an instrumental icon over the years and has been actively involved in certain controversial issues such as Sikhs being allowed to wear turbans on public transport, and Sikhs wearing turbans whilst riding a motorcycle. More recently a meeting was held at the Gurdwara to ascertain whether Sikhs should be allowed to wear turbans on construction sites. The outcome in all of these cases has been a positive one for Sikhs.

 

Our Purpose

 

The purpose of the Gurdwara is to primarily resonate the holy writings and teachings of the Gurus. The Gurdwara also has an integral role in uniting the local Sikh community, as well as addressing certain issues such as those mentioned above, all with the aspiration of making the voice of Sikhs heard, and to ensure the equality of mankind.

 

Whether it be going for a hard workout at our gym or simply sitting in the Diwan Hall listening to the graceful word of God, all castes, genders, races and religions are welcome at a gurdwara.

The Gurdwara

 

The Gurdwara covers an area of approximately 1500 square metres and is home to over 20 rooms. There are additional car parking facilities across the road from the main building. The closest train station is Wolverhampton Rail Station, and is approximately a 15 minute walk to the Gurdwara or under 10 minutes if you catch the number 11 bus (Stand J) from Wolverhampton Bus station. The Gurdwara is a distinguishing building and the Nishan Sahib can be seen flying high from far away.
