46800 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
In the 1950s, there was a small community of Sikhs residing in the vicinity of Petaling Jaya town and its surrounding areas. In 1956, these Sikhs formed the Guru Nanak Satsang, Kirtan, Satsang and prayers were held in the homes of the Sikh families in Petaling Jaya on a rotational basis.
Some of the pioneers who played an important part in the setting up of the first Gurdwara Sahib in Petaling Jaya were Sardar Labh Singh, Sardar Ala Singh, Sardar Lall Singh and Sardar Chattar Singh. In 1961, a single storey bungalow bearing the address No. 6, Jalan 4/48F, Petaling Jaya was acquired from Sardar Wesawa Singh and family for a token sum of RM14,000.00. This bungalow was renovated and converted into the Gurdwara Sahib premises. With the installation of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, the Holy Book of the Sikhs, these premises started to function as a Gurdwara. Prayers were held on Sunday mornings, Monday evenings, Gurpurabs and other religious functions were held as and when required at the request of the Sikh Sangat.
In 1968, the present premises of the Gurdwara Sahib, which is 21,780 square feet (about ½ acre) in size, were acquired from the Government for RM8,000.00. To raise this amount, the Management Committee appealed for donations (ugrahi) on three occasions from the small Sikh community. The foundation stone of this new double storey Gurdwara Sahib building was laid by Sant Baba Sohan Singh Ji of Malacca on 11th May 1968. The Sikh Sangat donated generously towards the cost of the Gurdwara Sahib building which was approximately RM250,000.00. The Selangor State Government also contributed RM20,000.00. The Gurdwara Sahib was officially declared open by Dato Harun bin Haji Idris, the Menteri Besar (Chief Minister) of the State of Selangor, on 25th March 1970.
In 1990, a four storey annex was built at a cost of RM 600,000.00. This comprises the office, two Granthi’s quarters, classrooms, store as well as one room for Sikh visitors. The main Darbar Sahib was also recently air-conditioned. It can seat about 800 Sikh devotees. During large functions e.g. Vesakhi in April, the car park area until next to the Gurdwara Sahib building is covered with canopy or tent to accommodate the Sangat.
In 2021, a Wake Area with body washing facilities & wake sitting area was constructed for the convenience of sangat & also the growing need with many staying in apartments. Langgar Hall was upgraded with a new open feel to it.
