Gurunanak Darbar Sikh Temple, Dubai

4.8
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in Dubai
Admire the traditional Sikh form of architecture at Gurunanak Darbar Sikh Temple, 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 gurdwara is a magnificent place, which still retains an air of piety. The langar is always open on Fridays and at certain times of the day on other days.  more »

    An excellent place for anyone to go. A very well organized place. It is a little on the exterior but it is a worth while trip. Really appreciate the work done. There is a lot of effort put into this. You get all days three times a day food.

Where to stay in Dubai

Dubai is a city of hotels, with most of the world's leading chains represented. Rooms remain expensive and luxurious, as most establishments cater to visitors with deeper pockets. You can still save money on accommodations if you look hard enough. Move away from the coast for more affordable backpacker hostels and self-service apartments, as well as less expensive hotel rooms where a lack of luxurious amenities and less appealing views keep rates suited to budget travelers.
