This is probably the best temple this side of India and is worth a visit regardless of if you have a function there. 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 hall also in development which is fantastic to see the temple investing in the youth.

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 just inside the main doors. You will be surprised how quiet and peaceful it is, so just sit down for a while and relax before exploring.

The gurdwara is the best in europe, from the fantastic architecture to the fantastic interior decorations, this is the one too see.Couples come from all over england just to get married there!With three large halls and two kitchens it will cater for most occasions.I have heard to book a wedding date there is a waiting time of about a year, unless you book in the winter months.To all visitors in kent make this attraction at the top of your list.

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.
