Gurduwara Sri Guru Kalgidhar Sahib is a largest Sikh temple in Continental Europe.It was inaugurated on Aug. 2111.It has been built in an industrial area that includes a factory of vacuum pump compressors and a cold-cut production plant.Its designer;Giorgio Mantovani said that the temple was inspired by Sikh models in India & it is both a monument and a center for the community.

It took years to construct this Gurdwra.Municipal permits were given and withdrawn in a nearby town when the temple became a politically thorny issue, so another site was found. A decade’s worth of bureaucratic hurdles also had to be overcome, money had to be raised by the Sikh community,and loans found to make up the rest of the price tag of €2 million, or nearly $3 million.
