A short history of Southall Sikh Temple:
Sikhs used homes as Gurdwara when they first arrived in Southall in the 1940s and ’50s. But with the increase of population, they need large building for prayer. So Sri Guru Singh Sabha Southall also known as SGSSS formed in the 1950s to build a building.
Building work at the Havelock Road gurdwara started in March 2000. It was inaugurated by HRH Prince of Wales ‘Prince Charles on Sunday 30 March 2003. Since then many dignitaries such as Former Prime Minister Rt Hon Tony Blair, Archbishop of Canterbury and the leaders of all the Political Parties have visited the Gurdwara.
