Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa
Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh

The Sikh Temple of Sacramento (commonly known as Gurdwara or “gateway to the guru”) at 2301 Evergreen Avenue, West Sacramento, CA 95691 is a place of worship for the majority of the Sikh population residing in the Greater Sacramento area. A church building, located on a two-acre site, was purchased in June 1983, and was remodeled to accommodate the needs of the Sikh community. The Sikh Temple of Sacramento was inaugurated on July 31, 1983. The Langar Hall (community kitchen) and the second story rooms were constructed during 1985-86. Additional two acres of land, adjacent to the existing, Gurdwara was purchased in September 1991 to build a new and bigger prayer hall to accommodate religious services for the fast growing Sikh Sangat (congregation) in the Sacramento area.
The construction work for the new Gurdwara building was started in 1994. The opening ceremony of the new prayer hall was held on July 27, 1997. The new prayer hall consists of 15,000 square feet of first floor area, and 5,000 square feet of second floor. The roof is adorned with four large size and thirty-six small size traditional domes. The new 26,000 square feet Langar Hall building has replaced the previous Langar Hall, and was inaugurated on April 18, 2010..

Sikh Emblems

Khanda

The Khanda is the symbol of the Sikh faith, and has the same importance for them as the Cross has for Christians. It represents some basic teachings of Sikhism, and is formed by three elements. The double-edged sword in the middle symbolizes divine knowledge. Its two sharp edges separate truth from falsehood. The circle represents oneness of the God, who is without beginning and end. This also represents unity of humanity and rejects divisions based on caste, race and sex. The two curved swords on the outside represent the concept of miri andpiri, or worldly and spiritual responsibilities. This shows that a Sikh should be a saint-soldier and maintain a balance between spiritual aspirations and societal obligations. The Khanda is generally made of stainless steel or is painted.

Nishan Sahib

The Nishan Sahib is the Sikh flag, and is provided in front of eachGurdwara. The flag is a saffron-colored triangular cloth with a Khanda, the Sikh emblem. The flag post is also covered with the same color cloth as the flag, and has a Khanda or a spear on top.

Ik Onkar

Read as “Ik Onkar,” it means, “There is Only One Supreme God.” This is the first statement of the Mul Mantra, a basic vivid summary defining God, in the beginning of Guru Nanak’s most philosophical composition – the Jap Ji Sahib – included in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
