Visiting the Gurudwara
Join us on Sundays! Our congregation (Sangat) welcomes everyone for the weekly program from 11am-2pm.. We are open 5 am to 9 pm every day
As you enter the building there will be a place for you to remove your shoes. No shoes may be worn beyond that area, including inside the main prayer hall, kitchen, or Langar hall (the area where we sit and eat together.) Then you will be asked to cover your head as a sign of respect to our holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Head coverings are provided at the Gurudwara, or you may bring your own. Caps or hats of any sort are discouraged.
Before entering the prayer hall, there is a table for donations. Our local Columbus Gurdwara runs completely on donations provided by our sangat (members of the Gurdwara). You are encouraged to give whatever you deem acceptable, Learn more about donating here.
While visiting the Gurdwara, feel free to ask anyone in the sangat questions. You will also have time after the main services, and during Langar (communal lunch), to talk with us. We look forward to your visit.
