In the fourth of our sacred buildings series, we explore the splendour of Sikh gurdwaras

The Golden Temple

The Golden Temple in Amritsar

With their domes, parapets and archways, Sikh gurdwaras have more than their share of majestic splendour and architectural beauty. Gurdwaras serve as places of congregational worship, shelter, administration, moral education, places to prepare and share food and house the scriptures.
