I have been to this place today , I was very curious about inside of the temple. So I couldnt stop myself and asked for permission to see inside and take some photos for myself. They were very kind and showed me the place and offered very nice food.
I was a little bit unease as there were many people (there was a wedding) as I am worried to disturb them. But nobody made me feel uncomfortable, definitely I will visit it again. I would love to learn more about their lives, religion. I work alongside of many different people but my knowledge about their culture, religions etc. is almost none. It will be great to know more. I am adding a few photos to reflect the magnificnce of the building. But what makes this temple great is not its structure but the people inside of it.

I have visited the Gurdwara many many times over the years. I watched it being built and on occasions helped out. I still go there when in the area and am always welcomed and offered a meal. Its a very beautiful building and I although a white english non sikh am always accepted. Its a place where you feel welcom and I sincerely reccommend you visit it as its a very cultural building of such interest.

Just a totally wonderful experience. Made to feel welcome the moment we entered.
Sat in on the 'service' in the peace of it all. Everyone there had a smile for us and I was surprised at the relaxed feel in the prayer room. We were then invited to have food and sat on the floor to enjoy the hospitality given.

I visited the Gurdwara mainly to look at the architecture. But I was pleasantly surprised when a very friendly chap asked me if I wanted a guided tour. He introduced me to
Ajaib Singh Cheema – President and ‘Mukh Sewadar. Who was the most friendly and educated person. He was joined by a lovely lady whose name I sadly forget.
They educated me in the history of the Sikh religion in some detail. All of which I could understand and absorb. Then I had a guided tour of the beautiful building. I was then shown to the Langar where I ate some lovely vegetarian food. Now I’m not religious ,but the sense of calm and friendliness along with the values that the Sikh community live by, made me feel honoured to have been there. Beautiful experience

Nice building, very grand, lovely inside foyer, huge building, free parking. Ok thats all good, huge Bhindrawalla picture in food hall, not one of our sikh guru's, Now lets get to the important part:- went to a wedding there recently, toilets were flooded, maintenance workers there on wedding day, ground floor stunk of toilets and drainage! Spirituallity was absent, covid 19 had taken over, most speeches were covid related at anand karaj ceromony.......great emphasis on how temple have 50 plus weddings to do by december 2020 and need to remain open. Wedding party treated like small children and continually being told what to do!! whilst one baba ji serving prashad wore no gloves!! contadictory to say the least (im talking from a hygiene perspective)!! I wouldnt have paid for this type of wedding day.

Visited today with my Nan, and was greeted with incredible warmth and openness from the people there. We were shown around the temple and told about all the philanthropic work they were doing providing meals for those affected by covid, and then encouraged to have some food in the food hall. A credit to the Sikh community, so welcoming and friendly.

Beautiful tample! Definitely worth a visit!
I went on a short day trip to Gravesend and I came accros some lovely pictures of the tample. I have read some reviews from other travellers and I decided to go in the morning when it is less busy. It is quite big and stunning from inside and outside too. It is a short walk from the train station. Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to be guided from a volunteer or someone who is informed about it's history. You will have to take your shoes off when you get inside. Left side are women raks, on the right are for men. Your hair should be covered as well. I have read about that earlier and took a scarf with me.

The Gurdwara complex is one of the largest outside India.
The complex has 3 prayer rooms and 2 langar halls.
On the day of my visit the temple was closed, however I was amazed by the outdoor arhitecture. Beautiful place, I can’t wait to come back to visit the inside rooms.

I was meeting my friend outside of Guru Nanak Darbar as I'd never been to Gravesend and it was an obvious landmark to find. Before we'd even met up, I was welcomed and invited into the Gurdwara by 3 seperate people with smiling faces and reassurance that I was dressed appropriately. Inside did not disappoint, it was beautiful and wonderful to look at. Everyone in side was welcoming and happy to advise us on what to do and how to cover our hair.
