Gurdwara Siri Guru Singh Sabha Temple (Bangkok-Thailand)
Gurdwara Siri Guru Singh Sabha is a popular place among the Hinduists. It is located near the Chinese Chinatown district, and there is a smaller community of Indians, known as the Little India, around the temple. You can there find Indian shops, fabrics, clothing, spices and more. In 1911, many Sikh families settled in Thailand with an epicenter in Bangkok. They did not have a place to hold their prayers, so they were held prayers in the family homes. In 1912, the community decided to establish their own temple (Gurdwara). The temple was originally found in a small hut they rented, and as the community expanded in 1933, today’s temple was completed. During WWII, the Allies targeted the Memorial Bridge nearby. Their bombing missed targets, and two bombs fell on a temple that was then a refuge center. To the surprise of all the people who were inside the temple, bombs fell through the roof, but did not explode.
