Overview

Completed in 1986, the Central Sikh Temple commemorates the 518th anniversary of Guru Nanak, the first Sikh Guru. Today, it serves as the main place of worship for Singapore's Sikh population. Built at a cost of SGD6.5 million, modern and traditional elements are clearly evident in its architecture. The 13-metre wide dome that caps the prayer hall is covered with white, grey and gold mosaic tiles. There are no columns, and devotees pray in a fully carpeted, air-conditioned environment. The Granth Sahib (holy book) is enshrined within the prayer hall. Many regard this temple as the most impressive Sikh temple outside Punjab.
