    Could an aquatic gurdwara be the wave of of the future? Gurdwaras like the Golden Temple have traditionally been surrounded by a sarovar, or moat like tank. Take it one step further and you may someday see a gurdwara built in the middle of the sea surrounded by ocean waves.

    The Seasteading Institute committed to establishing "autonomous ocean communities," ran a contest from February to May and has announced the winning designs. Check out some of the winning entries and tell us what you think and which one appeals to you most.

    Would you live in a seastead housing complex?
    Do you think think living in one would be more or less costly than traditional housing?
    Could you see worshiping in an ocean aquatic gurdwara?
    What would be the mode of transportation for seastead worshipers?

    "What do you want to take to the gurdwara today honey, the speed boat, or the jet ski?
    Oh let's take the glass bottom mini sub, it's chilly out today."

    Perhaps there would be ferries and seashuttles running back and forth between various seasteads and land.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
