We attended a wedding here, what a beautiful building. The people who have funded this grand place of worship are very proud and friendly to all visitors. Throughly enjoyable experience.

We had heard good reports about this Sikh temple. Though not religious people, we thought it worth a visit and we were not wrong. The Sikhs we encountered at the temple were helpful. Don't forget to wear clean socks and carry a scarf or similar, you are required to remove your shoes and cover your head (men too) on entry.... More

The site is stunning, exquisite architecture reminds you of India, fantastic inlays and carvings, great facilities and good to see some much outdoor space for sports and elderly alike to enjoy. I hear they have a sports... More

If you love religious buildings then this is for you. There is a car park for this place and it’s a pay and display park and it’s free on Sundays! When you use the post code DA12 1AG, the tom tom will take you somewhere else so, follow the road signs. This is a mosque-like religious building nicely made and... More

When I travel I quite often visit and take pictures of religious buildings. This is one of the largest in Europe and is a work in progress but you can visit at any time, obviously free entry. If you want to have a look, please just be respectful, cover you head and remove your shoes in the large areas provided... More

The Sikh community is always welcoming and seem to like showing visitors around. You will need to take your shoes off and wear something on your head (supplied) when inside. You may even be offered something to eat.
