Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

Welcome to the website of the Guru Kalgidhar Gurdwara in Leeds. The Gurdwara (meaning the House of God) is the Sikh place of worship. It is both a spiritual place of worship and a cultural learning centre for the young and old. When it was opened, Guru Kalgidhar Gurdwara was the first Gurdwara in Leeds.

The Guru Kalgidhar Gurdwara is open to everyone because in Sikhism everyone is equal. This equality is shown by everyone sitting together in the diwan hall When coming to the Gurdwara, please bear this in mind when deciding on what to wear. Additionally, everyone is required to take off their shoes before entering the Gurdwara and keep their heads covered at all times whilst in the Gurdwara. We’ve listed these rules along with more information about the Gurdwara.Alcohol, tobacco, smoking or meat is not allowed on the Gurdwara premises

All shoes must be removed before entering the Diwan Hall or the Langar Hall. Shoe racks are available inside the entrance hall of the Gurdwara.

Your head must be covered at all times whilst inside the Gurdwara. Scarves are available inside the Gurdwara.

Bow in front of the Guru Granth Sahib Ji when joining the sangat inside the Diwan Hall.

Everyone sits cross-legged on the carpeted floor facing the Guru Granth Sahib Ji when inside the Diwan Hall. The custom at this Gurdwara is for females to sit on the left and for males to sit on the right, although this sitting arrangement does vary between Gurdwaras.

Everyone stands up during the Ardaas (common prayer to God).

Members of the sangat can offer money, butter, milk, fruit or sugar etc. towards the upkeep of the Gurdwara or as ingredients for the langar meal but this is optional.

All mobile phones must be switched off before entering the Diwan hall.
