Dubai is an Oasis of religious tolerance. In Dubai, the Bur Dubai temple and private homes being used for mass gatherings were bursting, prompting community leaders to look into the possibility of building a larger space for worship of the Guru Granth Sahib.
They grew from five families, to 10 families to 50 families and it became hard for them to ask the hostess to make chapattis in a day. So they decided that whoever comes brings 10 chapattis, and the hostess would make the vegetables and the dal.
Though temporary Gurudwaras had come and gone, the community needed a permanent place of worship. The very thought of building a permanent and official Gurdwara in the heart of an Islamic state was considered nothing short of an Arabian mirage.
The push for an official Gurudwara began about 27 years ago. The proposals kept getting knocked back but they did not give up. It was a pleasant and joyous surprise when consent was received from the Council of Imams. A historic moment for Sikh community.
Now there would be a Gurdwara for solemnizing marriages and holding other religious ceremonies. The dream of the Community was to make it the best after Golden Temple in Amritsar.

The profusion of designs-the balance of colours-the rhythm and sparkle of the ornaments-the variety of textures-all come together in a perfect synthesis.
While the eye is caught by the incredible detail, on which its gaze cannot help but linger, it is the sum of the whole that really evokes the splendor of the Temple. It is both a celebration of life, and a monument to the glory of the One Who created it, a shrine of grandeur with a sense of homely peace.
