Welcome to the website of the Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara in Bradford. The Gurdwara (meaning the House of God) is the Sikh place of worship. It is both a spiritual place of worship and a cultural learning centre for the young and old. When it was opened, Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara was the first Gurdwara in Bradford.
The Guru Gobind Singh Gurdwara is open to everyone because in Sikhism everyone is equal. This equality is shown by everyone sitting down together on the carpeted floor in the Diwan hall. When coming to the Gurdwara, please bear this in mind when deciding on what to wear. Additionally, everyone is required to take off their shoes before entering the Gurdwara and keep their heads covered at all times whilst in the Gurdwara. We’ve listed these rules along with more information about the Gurdwara.
