Labuan’s Gurdwara Sahib temple has a history dating back to the 1950s, when it was merely a small wooden structure.
In 1967, a fire razed the building. However, the Holy Book contained within remained unscathed. That same year, the foundation stone was laid for the new Gurdwara Sahib temple complex and it became open to the public in 1969.
In 1996/97, this impressive place of worship was further renovated by a local Sikh philanthropist to the present double-storey brick building with three golden domes straddling the top of the edifice.
Officially reopened in 2000, the Labuan Gurdwara Sahib boasts beautiful design elements and architecture inspired by the world-famous Golden Temple in Amritsar, India.
The temple, which is located close to the unique Masjid Jamek An-Nur, has a dining hall, kitchen and other facilities.
Accommodation at the temple’s hostel is offered at no charge to those in need.
Visitors are required to cover their heads with a piece of cloth while visiting the temple. Smoking at the temple premises is strictly prohibited.
