Inspired by the Golden Temple in Amritsar in India, one of the most important shrines in the Sikh religion, the new temple overlooks Newcastle city centre and St James’s Park.
It was a historic day for Newcastle’s Sikh community when they celebrated the opening of a new temple.
With a procession from the old Gurdwara to the new location in Cottenham Street, there was a grand opening with a display from a martial arts group and a flower ceremony, before formal speeches from faith leaders, MPs and leader of Newcastle Council Nick Forbes.
