GURDWARA SINGH SABHA
WHERE IS IT? On Berkeley Street, just of Argyle Street in the Finnieston area, just behind the Mitchell Library
The Gurdwara Singh Sabha has existed in Berkeley Street since 1981, but phase one of the impressive brand new building was completed more recently in 2016.
The new building was constructed to accommodate the growing number of Sikhs in Glasgow. The site of the building was the old gurdwara's car park and was previously home to Glasgow's old Eye Infirmary.
Although a symbolic foundation stone was laid in April 1999, work did not actually commence until November 2010. In 2016, Phase One of the New Central Gurdwara Singh Sahba was completed. In order to achieve an authentic look, almost all of the materials used by architect firm Calford Seaden were sourced from India, including the stonework and marble flooring.
Along with providing space for worship, the new Gurdwara offers classrooms, a library, an office and a ceremonial pool and is open to the general public outside of times of worship.
