The Gurudwara Sahib Cape Town was inaugurated last month to cater for the growing Sikh and Punjabi communities.

Sikhism is one of the youngest major religions of the world and was founded by Guru Nanak Dev Ji in the late 15th century.

The temple opening in Cape Town followed the setting up of temples in Durban in 2000 and Johannesburg in 2006.

The land for the Cape Town venue was provided by the Radha Krishna Temple in Rylands and the Hindu Association of the Western Cape.

Ranjeev Kapoor, chairman of the Gurudwara Sahib Cape Town, said the idea of having a temple in the city was initiated by the growing Sikh community, with support from Harbinder Singh Sethi, chairman of the Gurudwara Sahib Johannesburg.

"Most Sikhs in South Africa are ex-patriate Indians from India, Kenya, Botswana and other countries who have migrated to the country in the past 10 to 15 years and are now residents here," he said.

The Johannesburg temple was established four years ago by former Kenyans Sethi and his, wife, Pamela, who donated their property

The Sikh religion is one which I admire most. They have a respect for all life, including animals, and are forbidden to eat meat of any kind. It is a pity that this religion is not more popular in the West. They have great spiritual teachings and beliefs, and also their temples in India are the most beautiful in the world, including the famous Amritsar temple.
Could you post some photos of this new temple in SA?
It would be a good thing if all blacks in SA converted to this humane religion. They would be an example to the rest of the world.

Just because you are naive in believing you are superior to other races and religious groups does not mean you are right...
Maybe you should take your judgemental rude ass back to your low life moms house so she can teach you better manners..

f Sikhism is 2 b judged as a faith of any serious weight or merit then ponder on the follow questions:

1. Sikh parents habitually brainwash their children by telling them how barbaric the muslims (esp. Mughals) were towards "our gods". Muslims are responsible for murdering them. If a god can't save his own skin, how 's he gona protect his followers?

2. Ik Onkar (one god)in actual fact means all the 10 gurus collectively & not one god as the concept in gods unity is ever so ambigious in Sikhism.

3. This story is a favourite sikh chestnut, told when ever sikhs find an excuse. Guru Gobind was in Mecca, lying down with is feet facing towrds the Ka'ba. The rest is history. Anyway this story just doesn't add up. Only a brain-washed fanatic can swollow this wholesale. First off, what was Guru Gobind doing in Islams most sacred city? Obviously, if he was a prophet, then he would have been wise enough to know that as the figure-head of a new religious movement i.e. Siki, he wouldn't entertain anything remotely Islamic. However the man was monomaniac in his interest of everything Islam. U c readers u need to remember that one of the most celebrated incidents in Guru Gobinds life was when he was presumed drowned after 3 days in the wilderness. The story goes after he found enlightenment the first words he uttered were 'There is no Hindu, there is no Musalmaan.' In one breath the great Guru wrote off Islam as an irrelevant & impractical religion. But having said these much vaunted words, he still found time to ambulate in Muslim lands for nearly TWO DECADES! And yet he had the nerve to say "there is no Muslaman". Furthermore, the man who declared Muslims defunct also performed the Muslim pilgrimage of Hajj! So many contradictory things happened in his life, that any one with a rational mind is left in a state of total confusion. Anyway, had he really been in Mecca, he would have been chastised verbally at the very least for showing blatant disrespect to a fundamental belief sacred to all musilms, by pointing his feet towrds the Ka'ba. If he continued his irreverance, then its entirely possible he would have been killed. But had he really perfomed hajj, then this would be the last thing he would do. I believe this story didn't come from the mouth of Guru Gobind Ji but was inserted into Siki by short-sighted sikh revisionists do give some credibility to his prophetic status

Lol no one else changes there name to appear that there are more ppl that support...
No child has ever been taught that Muslims are bad or whatever, we've been taught that were all equal!
Ur biggest problem is making up false allegations, just coz u don't know shit no need to make any up!!

What do u know about Sikhism to say what Ik Onkar is? Nothing! Judging by your words u obviously no nothing about it! There is only ONE God if I must point out, there's no "gods"
I feel even stupid explaining this to a 5 yr old!

Lol this is another Khalistani center for Sikh extremists to meet up.
Thats what sikh is doing day and night , fooling the world as sikh being a religion which has been persecuted so donate money land rights temple s to sikhs.
What sikh never tells
1. Why sikh is built on hatred and why do one thousand million Indians hate sikhs.
2. How Sikh is making Khalistani bases outside India to create sikh Khalistan.
3. how sikh abuses the priviledges given to it a gesture of Mercy when sikh begs.
4. What sikhs does after that makes it difficult to reverse the sikh infestation.
5. sikh never belongs to Muslims so what is sikh doing in Arab and Africa. Only to cheat and steal monies.

Why this Nanak Bhenchode should be left when he is the root cause of all Sikh Evil.
He was the Engineer who designed Sikh Bomb.He was hid all his life pretending to be a Muslim. How nasty is that.If Sikh accept that he was a Muslim then everything changes, and sikh must respect Islam.
