  • A gurdwara has many rooms, including a resting place, a langar, a Darbar (main) hall, a library, and a community kitchen.


  • Sikhism believes in God. God is called Hari in Sikhism.


  • The primary document and teacher in Sikhism is the Book, called the Guru Granth Sahib.

  • So the layout of the temple will reflect progress of the pilgrim to the place of rest, to the place of worship, to the place of community service, to the place of learning, vidya giri


  • On entering a temple, devotees will sit cross-legged on the floor.


  • On entering the hall, devotees walk slowly and respectfully to the main throne (called the takht) on which the Guru Granth Sahib rests. Devotees then stand before the Holy Scriptures, often say a silent prayer, then bow humbly.


  • Conclusion of services is a community meal in the langar, the community hall
