    Yes and no. Sikhs worship together in a gurdwara, which is like a church for Christians. Services can be held any day of the week, and since many of their neighbors in the U.S. attend services on Sundays, gurdwaras usually have larger attendance on that day of the week.

    13800038 ji people go to Gurdwaras on all different days and also in larger numbers on specific days of greater importance in Sikhism.

    Some people go early in the morning to listen to "Asa di Vaar" in a quiet reflecting environ. Sikhism is blessed that in general the attendance in Gurdwaras to interact with "Sangat" (congregation) is much more than say Christian churches. This is of course not true for all churches.

    Hope above is of some clarification.

    Well, consider i am a Christian child of 6-10yrs, how will you tell me about a Gurdwara in a language he understands at his age level. Remember this section is for students. This section is here to polish off replies to such questions so that when somebody asks such a question, kids are ready or a general idea of how to approach the reply.

    If you can improve this reply then this section would have served its purpose.

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!
