The Gurudwara Sahib Cape Town was inaugurated last month to cater for the growing Sikh and Punjabi communities.

Sikhism is one of the youngest major religions of the world and was founded by Guru Nanak Dev Ji in the late 15th century.

The temple opening in Cape Town followed the setting up of temples in Durban in 2000 and Johannesburg in 2006.

The land for the Cape Town venue was provided by the Radha Krishna Temple in Rylands and the Hindu Association of the Western Cape.
