Gateway to Sikhism



No. 28 Jalan Taiping, 32700 Bruas, Perak

The Gurdwara Sahib Bruas building was acquired around 1918. It is situated on a piece of land, which is about 11/2 acres in size. At that time, there was a flourishing Sikh community in Bruas, many of whom worked in the transport business or were cloth merchants. Most of these Sikh businessmen used to stay in the Gurdwara Sahib premises to rest for a few days before proceeding on their journey.

Gradually, most of the Sikhs left Bruas for other areas. Finally, as there were no Sikh families left in Bruas, the Gurdwara Sahib was closed in October 1971. Since late 1971, this Gurdwara Sahib has been under the care of the Khalsa Diwan Malaysia, Ipoh. Presently, Sardar Dayal Singh, Sardar Gurdev Singh, Sardar Suka Singh and Sardar Sarbjit Singh assist in the maintenance of this Gurdwara Sahib.

The Sikh Sangat from surrounding areas, especially Sitiawan, gather here once or twice a year and hold kirtan and prayers.
