Gurudwara Details: A MASSIVE 6-7 storey Sikh Gurduara in the heart of the Business district built in 1911.
This is considered to be the second-biggest Sikh temple outside India and its construction is said to have cost 100 million baht (around 1.9 million euros). Indeed, so simply elegant is this marble structure with its golden dome, that this price may very well be correct. When the Sikhs breakfast at the temple, non-Sikh visitors may also sit down and eat with them - as is the case in all Sikh temples
Run under the auspices of the THAI SIKH ORGANISATION. Functions held daily, also houses Medical facilities, School and various other Sikh organisations.
This Gurduara is a MUST for Sikh visitors in Bangkok, there about 26 other Gurduaras in Thailand, although the Sikh Thai Org, only records about 17.
During the 2nd WWar 2 bombs fell directly on the building, with several hundred Sikhs sheltering, but they failed to explode.
