On April 17, 1999, The Indianapolis Star reported on the new Sikh temple in Indianapolis. Though the Sikh community established itself in Indianapolis in the 1960s, Sikhs have been worshipping in rented houses and community centers for the past several decades. Today, more than 200 Sikh families are a part of the new temple community. They are happy to be able to celebrate the Sikh New Year, Vaisakhi, and the 300th anniversary of the Khalsa in their own temple.
