According to the 2001 census, there are approximately 8,000 Sikhs in Leeds, and that number is rising.

From small beginnings, Sikhism has grown and there are now seven gurudwaras (meaning "the doorway to the Guru) in the city.

Each gurudwara (sometimes spelt gurdwara) is a focus for spirituality but also acts as a community centre.

They offer shelter, food, training and education, sporting activities as well as help and advice.
