    Visitors 'in awe' at Leamington Spa's temple open days

    The Gurdwara Sahib was open for Heritage Open Days on 8-11 September

    An £11m Sikh temple in Leamington Spa provided tours to over 300 visitors for Heritage Open Days 2011.

    The Gurdwara Sahib on the Queensway trading estate has iconic white domes visible from the M40.

    For the Heritage Open event on 8-11 September visitors were able to explore areas usually closed to the public.

    Jatinder Singh Birdi, from the temple, said: "People are quite in awe when they come in. Internally it's a magnificent place."

    He added: "People were very curious to see the building work because it's massive.

    "Now it's nearly two years old some of the people coming during the weekend said they always wondered what happened inside but didn't want to interrupt anything taking place.

    "Open days encourage them to get over that fear and have a look."

    Organisers at the Sikh temple also used the event to publicise that visitors are welcome any time.

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!
