Aiming to provide a place where people can feel at home, the only Sikh Temple in Sheffield was officially opened on the 28th of May 2012.
Located just 3 miles from the city centre, the Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji Gurdwara has a large hall which can fit more than 300 people, a canteen, library and multiple prayer rooms.
The Gurdwara (meaning the House of God) is both a spiritual place of worship and a cultural learning centre for the young. Many university students come here regularly to perform prayers, worship and learn about religion.
