The Sikh Temple of Sacramento (commonly known as Gurdwara or "gateway to the guru") at 2301 Evergreen Avenue, West Sacramento, CA 95691 is a place of worship for the majority of the Sikh population residing in the Greater Sacramento area. A church building, located on a two-acre site, was purchased in June 1983, and was remodeled to accommodate the needs of the Sikh community. The Sikh Temple of Sacramento was inaugurated on July 31, 1983. The Langar Hall (community kitchen) and the second story rooms were constructed during 1985-86. Additional two acres of land, adjacent to the existing, Gurdwara was purchased in September 1991 to build a new and bigger prayer hall to accommodate religious services for the fast growing Sikh Sangat (congregation) in the Sacramento area. The construction work for the new Gurdwara building was started in 1994. The opening ceremony of the new prayer hall was held on July 27, 1997. The new prayer hall consists of 15,000 square feet of first floor area, and 5,000 square feet of second floor. The roof is adorned with four large size and thirty-six small size traditional domes. The new 26,000 square feet Langar Hall building has replaced the previous Langar Hall, and was inaugurated on April 18, 2010.
