    CA gov attends opening of largest US Sikh temple




    The nation's largest Sikh temple is now open in San Jose following a $20 million expansion.

    Gov. Jerry Brown and San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed attended Sunday's open house of the Sikh Gurdwara-San Jose, along with clergy from other faiths. Thousands of Sikhs travelled from around Northern California for the big opening.

    The expansion includes a new prayer hall, classrooms for more than 600 children to attend religious school and apartments for temple priests and visitors.

    The San Jose Mercury News reports that Brown praised the community's success in a speech Sunday.

    Brown also vowed to seek justice for two Sikh men who were shot — one of them fatally — in the Sacramento suburb of Elk Grove last month. Police are investigating the case as a possible hate crime.
