Trip Planner: Asia / United Arab Emirates / Emirate of Dubai / Dubai / Gurunanak Darbar Sikh Gurudwara
Admire the traditional Sikh form of architecture at Gurunanak Darbar Sikh Gurudwara, the first Sikh place of worship in the Gulf region. Opened in 2012, the large complex is inspired by the Golden Temple in Amritsar and the Sri Guru Singh Sabha in Southall, London. It serves Dubai's Sikh community, followers of the dharma that originated in the Punjab region of South Asia. The central dome measures 18 m (60 ft) in diameter, arching over the large, carpeted prayer room. Admire the delicate traditional grill that covers the parikarma (the path through the temple), and round out your visit with a trip to the onsite restaurant, serving classic examples of Sikh cuisine in a bustling dining hall.

Gurunanak Darbar Sikh Gurudwara Reviews
This is religious place (temple)for Sikhs. Very close to Ibn Al Batuta metro station and mall. You can get taxi from the station. They also serve free food (called langer). more »
Amazing Gurdwara and a beautiful place of worship for both Sikhs and non-Sikhs. I accidentally clicked on ‘helpful’ for a negative review which I can not undo as tripadvisor doesn’t allow this... more »
The first Sikh Gurdwara in Dubai. A must see. There is also free freshly cooked hot vegetarian food served around the clock to anyone who visits the temple, regardless of faith or beliefs. Need to dress modestly and both men women need to cover their heads in buildings, but this is provided for free. No alcohol or tobacco permitted on site. A spectacular temple with great friendly assistance. Have won many Guinness book of records. Best day to visit is Friday, as beginning of weekend in Dubai.
Very peaceful place! Religious place of worship for Sikhs. Very spacious, clean, and technologically advanced. It’s a gorgeously built structure, about 30 min drive out of downtown, prayers are continuously being done, amazing for the soul. They have hot food, free of charge, as long as you follow the rules, you’re more than welcome to attend. No short skirts, no shorts, no tube tops etc and your head has to be covered, both men and women. It was on the bucket list, it is now checked!
