Gurunanak Darbar Sikh Gurudwara, Dubai

4.7
#2 of 19 in Historic Sites in Dubai
Admire the traditional Sikh form of architecture at Gurunanak Darbar Sikh Gurudwara, the first Sikh place of worship in the Gulf region. Opened in 2012, the large complex is inspired by the Golden Temple in Amritsar and the Sri Guru Singh Sabha in Southall, London. It serves Dubai's Sikh community, followers of the dharma that originated in the Punjab region of South Asia. The central dome measures 18 m (60 ft) in diameter, arching over the large, carpeted prayer room. Admire the delicate traditional grill that covers the parikarma (the path through the temple), and round out your visit with a trip to the onsite restaurant, serving classic examples of Sikh cuisine in a bustling dining hall.

  • The first Sikh Gurdwara in Dubai. A must see. There is also free freshly cooked hot vegetarian food served around the clock to anyone who visits the temple, regardless of faith or beliefs. Need to dress modestly and both men women need to cover their heads in buildings, but this is provided for free. No alcohol or tobacco permitted on site. A spectacular temple with great friendly assistance. Have won many Guinness book of records. Best day to visit is Friday, as beginning of weekend in Dubai.
  • Very peaceful place! Religious place of worship for Sikhs. Very spacious, clean, and technologically advanced. It’s a gorgeously built structure, about 30 min drive out of downtown, prayers are continuously being done, amazing for the soul. They have hot food, free of charge, as long as you follow the rules, you’re more than welcome to attend. No short skirts, no shorts, no tube tops etc and your head has to be covered, both men and women. It was on the bucket list, it is now checked!
  • Beautiful. God Rabbi's home. There is nothing can be greater and peaceful than worship at gurudwara. Guru Nanak Darbar, Dubai, Holly Place.
  • Its a place to worship for Sikh community but all the people from different faith, countries, caste, creed, colour are welcome. One can have a free food called *Langar* and can sit for a while to listen to the Gurbani ( rhymes ) which are being sung there for all the praise of Almighty. Fridays are the big days when most of the people come over and its really wonderful to see the excellent management of the gatherings.
  • Peaceful, tranquil full of positivity. Excellent Gurudwara, great langar, very good layout. It’s a great place to come and meditate and find peace and solace.
