On December 9, 2004 the Associated Press reported, "members of a Sikh congregation who have worshipped for a decade in an old farmhouse are preparing to move their services to a spacious, five-domed temple that took more than five years to build. In April, the Sikh Religious Society of Northwest Indiana intends to move from the farmhouse to the $1.3 million new temple, or gurudwara, in Merrillville. The region's first Sikh temple, at 10,000 square feet it will be reminiscent of India's airy temples, such as the Golden Temple, Sikh's holiest shrine."
