Description :
In March 2006 a new Sikh Temple (gurdwara) was opened at Glen Osmond in the former Colonial Hotel building. The Sikh Society of South Australia has a membership which covers most of the state, and has grown in recent years, particularly through an influx of overseas students. Sikhism is 500 years old and encourages the belief in one God, taking the writings of the Ten Gurus as the religion's holy texts.
