At a Glance

Despite being the world’s fifth largest religion, about twice as populous as Judaism, Sikhs are little known. Started in the Punjab area of India around the time of Martin Luther, this tradition is eminently practical with an enormous emphasis on service towards others that is enacted daily at main temples. Come learn the tradition’s history, why many wear turbans and uncut beards, why some carry the kirpan (dagger) with them at all times and about their magnificent central site of worship, the Golden Temple.
