The Nanaksar Gurdwara Gursikh Temple

I stumbled across this very impressive structure north of Edmonton, Alberta. At first I had no idea what it was - other than some kind of religious edifice - but a little research showed that it is the Nanaksar Gurdwara Gursikh Temple - a Sikh temple.

This is the largest Gurdwara in Alberta, and the above photo shows that it is still expanding.

It's such a beautiful building . . . and very different!

  1. It's beautiful! I have never seen a photo of it or knew of it before and I have been very near to it may times.

  2. I bet it looks odd snow covered.

    1. A lot of things here look odd covered in snow.

  3. I delivered a load of pipe there in the 1990s and it was of more modest proportions back then. How it's grown. Makes those churches we saw in Spain look downright understated.
