Gurdwara Sikh Sangat serves as a religious gathering place for Sikhs (and those interested in Sikhism) of the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. As the Sikh community in the North Texas area grew, a need was felt to create a congregation meeting place for Sikhs in the Western part of the Metroplex – leading to the opening of the Gurdwara Sikh Sangat in October 2000. The Sangat (congregation) of the Gurdwara Sahib has grown rapidly, as the congregation members and their families strive to realize their rich faith and culture. To keep up with the needs of the growing Sangat, a new building was constructed and religious services were started there end of December 2017.
Sikhs practice Sikhism, which is a relatively young religion founded in the 1400s. The religion is based on the key concepts of oneness of God and equality for all. Sikhs are numbered at about 27 million worldwide, ranking the faith as the world’s fifth largest religion. Sikhs follow the teachings of their ten Gurus through their holy book and Living Guru, Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Sikhism preaches a message of devotion to God, truthful living, and goodwill to all mankind.
