Colour and celebrations as new Sikh temple in Newcastle opens

Sun 21 Apr 2013UK

It's been an historic day for Tyneside's Sikh community with the official opening of a new temple that cost the community £2.7 million to build.

The new building, just off the city's Westgate Road, replaces an old Temple which has been used or almost 35 years.

Today a Holy Book was moved from the old building to the new in a colourful ceremony.

The project has taken 15 years to complete.

The new Temple, called a Gurdwara, will be used as a focal point for the entire community. As well as worship, it has classrooms, meeting rooms and a large dining area.

Around 700 people from all faiths turned out to the opening of the new Temple.
