    I am a hard core believer of Guru Nansk Saheb Ji, The architecture and vibe really amazing, But please dont have langar in this gurudwara, because we eat lanagar as blessings of wahe guru but the servings what people they are doing like we are there are for free meals and we dont have food at our home to eat, so we visited there for free meal, The behaviour i noticed it was purely not sewa, it was just like they were treating we are came to have our dinner Really disappointed and dishonored. I request to all, please go for darshan only, please dont consider there langar as Prasad, Because langar should be coming from heart with true feelings. But honestly those who will serve you, those people dont have seva bhaav in there heart, so its not langar its just they think you are there for your lunch or dinner. Thanks and sorry, I have right to write my review.

    A blessing .
    A blessing to visit this Gurdwara , more so that the Sikhism faith is honoured and recognised in Dubai allowing Sikhism to grow strength to strength without restrictions. A beautiful building , spaciousness in all areas from langar hall to darbar. Very clean , well maintained and open to all visitor’s.

    Suddenly, India, and a relaxing atmosphere
    You want to switch to another mood from Dubai? Head straight to this Sikh temple! Though clearly the only non Indians, we were very well welcomed, after washing hands and wearing some sort of bandana... Temple is so relaxing and bringing inner peace. Just sitting for a while was like recharging batteries. When leaving the temple, no taxis in sight, but again the Indians there were so helpful, and indeed a bus from the community drove all of us without a car to the near Ibn Battuta mall - free of charge mind you. Thanks to all the people behind this, bless them all.

Gurdwara is one of those places where you go to find peace, so did this one. But while coming out today the security spoke abruptly while i was with my old mother and upon requesting him to talk politely he did not stop and was coming over me. He even shouted saying that i can complain. To add to it one of another staff may be from admin started shouting on us and my family including a toddler was feeling threatned so i had to take my family away from them. Not sure but felt some bias, may be i am wrong, but the way they both shouted on us and spoke abruptly, is forcing me to feel this way. Will try and raise this to appropriate authorities so others do not face what i and my family went through.

A place of worship does not qualify to be one of the must-visit or tourist places. I strongly believe a place of worship is open to people of all faiths as long as you have faith in you.

I visited this place in search of peace of mind and positivity and what I returned with from this place is immeasurable or unquantified.

I couldn't stay for long but stayed long enough to make a memory, embrace the energy, the faith and the positivity that I needed.

We went to this gurudwara because that day my baby was crying to go to gurudwara. we arrived there 8.23 pm. We request them to let us go only in darbhar sahib even if they allow only one person to take baby up there. they said we could not go in because gurudwara is close even though my baby was crying and sangat was still going on upstairs. Lots of sangat was sitting in darbhar sahib and lunger hall. They said if you go in they will fight with you. We came back with crying baby. we all were very sad and disappointed. First of all what is the reason of security in gurudwara. I think they don't trust our guru. they feel they are more powerful then our guru. Second of all they don't respect guru sangat .that type of people are finishing our religion. ras al khaimah gurudwara is very far from my place i take my kids there they go there with happy mode and return with happy mode. when we go to ras al khaimah gurudwara we returned with a very peaceful mind. It was very very sad moment and I was worried about our religion.

I was highly disappointed in the women’s attire and how the Gianni’s allow them to enter in a place of worship dressed inappropriately. My husband was refused to video us in the gurdwara whilst every attempt was made to respect the Granth sahib. We were refused langar because it was closing time. I did point it out to the committee present there how it is against Sikhs to turn away people from langar and that it’s not a business that gets closed it’s a place of worship. The security guard just laughed at me. Then the older Giani said please come and some tea!!!

Me and my friend have visited this place several times. Whenever we come everytime we enjoyed a Lunger and the food was scrumptious whereas the service was ☝️no. Even in 5 star hotels you will not get such delicious food and the service which you will get experience here. Overall this was my memorable trip with good vibes and awesome structure.
Thanks the entire team of Gurudwara!
You people are doing such a great job!
May God Bless All Of Us🙏

Whilst on my honeymoon, myself and my wife decided to take time out and visit this gurdwara. It is such a beautiful gurdwara inside and out and we understand why so many people want to visit this place of worship.

Unfortunately soon as we walked in a security guard came running up and told me I was dressed inappropriately as my knee length shorts were not long enough and would have to wear a pair of trousers which he provided; given I was in a place of worship I didn't want to argue the fact that Singhs wear long shorts with their Bana (religious clothing) but hey I was here to pray and not argue so I accepted the trousers and made my way upstairs.
We sat in the darbar hall and there was just Kirtan being played over the PA system. We sat there for a short while meditating and doing our own personal prayers. Once we got up we seen a few boards outside the darbar hall with information on therefore we started reading these and the more and more we read it seemed like this gurdwara was being treated like a tourist attraction rather than a place of worship, it seemed as if the committee members were more concerned about impressing public figures rather than practicing the core values of Sikhism.

As we waited for the taxi driver to finish eating langar we noticed a large school bus arrive with a handful of children. They took a few pictures against a poster and then the children, their teachers and the gurdwara staff (security guard and committee members) formed a line from the school bus which was outside the front door, up the front steps and to a room next to the front doors. They were passing parcels which were hand wrapped with wrapping paper and looked like gifts. Only problem is the school kids and teachers were passing these gifts with care to each other, however once it reached the security guard inside the front door and out of view of the children and teachers they were being tossed to the next committee members who was throwing them onto the floor in a room.
As I looked on with utter shock and frustration they continued with this practice for some time. I decided to do the right thing and approach the security guard and asked who are these gifts from, to which he replied from the school and their kids. I then expressed my concerns that these school kids have spent time and effort hand wrapping these gifts and they are just being tossed with no regard into a room, the security guard replied that I need not worry as they will need to open up everything to see what's inside. They laughed off my concerns and continued therefore i decided to film their actions as proof (sadly it doesn't allow me to upload videos on TripAdvisor). Later I discovered there was food inside the boxes which really made my stomach turn, this was known to everyone and yet they were throwing these on the floor. This food would then be distributed to other people, the members of this gurdwara really have no principles of Sikhism and again proved they are only doing this for the public eye.

If that wasn't enough, as I looked above where I was sat there was a poster about their trip advisor rating, again validating my views. I am really disappointed with what I witnessed on my visit, only positive thing during this whole experience was the taxi driver who seemed like a genuine kind hearted person. I really hope the committee members embed the principles of Sikhism as if a non-Sikh witnessed what I did, it would leave a very sour taste in their mouth about Sikhi and would paint us all with the same brush.

This is a very beautiful gurdwara inside and out, I just hope the people who run it also have a beautiful heart and treat this as a place of worship rather than for their own gain. My rating is based on what I witnessed on my visit from members of the gurdwara rather than the building itself.

While it was classified as the number 1 attraction of Dubai, we were really determined to go there. And it proved to be a chalenge to come there. Even with a privat car with local driver it was not easy. We were brought to an officer who gave us a little tour. He told us some interesting things about Sikhreligion and the temple. Although it was a nice place to visit, I have no idea why it is classified as nummer 1 attraction, there was not very much to see. In my opiom it can' t compare to many other attractions in Dubai.
